Democratic Ohio Senate nominee Tim Ryan said on Sunday that he plans to join President Biden at an upcoming event in the Buckeye State. 

“Yes, I will. This is a huge opportunity,” Ryan, who’s currently serving in the House of Representatives, told host Dana Bash on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“The CHIPS Act that we passed is all about reshoring high-end manufacturing jobs. Intel is going to invest, what they’re saying, up to $100 billion into Ohio to manufacture these chips…that we need for our cars and all the technology,” Ryan said, referring to legislation passed and signed into law in an effort to help restore high-end manufacturing jobs. 

“This is the biggest, most transformational economic development project in Ohio’s history,” he added. “I will be there.”

Biden plans to be in Ohio in September for the groundbreaking of Intel’s new $20 billion semiconductor facilities, the White House said last week.  

“The average wage there is going to be $135,000 a year. Those are the jobs we’re talking about,” Ryan told Bash on Sunday. “Those are the jobs with dignity. That’s what I’m fighting for.”

Ryan will face Republican Senate nominee J.D. Vance in November’s midterm election. 

An Emerson College poll published last week found that Vance, who is backed by former President Trump, leading Ryan by 3 points, with 45 percent of respondents supporting Vance and 42 percent backing Ryan.
