Ohio Election Results Midterms 2022

Ohio 2022 midterm election

(NewsNation) — NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ has called the Ohio gubernatorial race for Republican Richard Michael DeWine.

Decision Desk HQ also called the state’s U.S. Senate race for Republican J.D. Vance, a venture capitalist and author of “Hillbilly Elegy.”

Former President Donald Trump-backed Vance defeated Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan, denying Democrats a chance to pick up the state’s empty Senate seat. 

Ohio’s Senate race drew national attention as the two candidates ran aggressive campaigns.

The Ryan-Vance debate was one of the most contentious in this election cycle, filled with heated exchanges and accusations of extreme policies.

This race had been identified as an important opportunity for Democrats to flip a seat in their favor in a Republican stronghold after the incumbent Republican Senator Rob Portman chose to vacate his seat after 12 years in office. Polls suggested Vance and Ryan were neck-and-neck in their fight for the unlikely battleground state.

Three of Ohio’s Supreme Court seats are also up for the taking as this race presents Democrats the opportunity to flip the court blue. This would prove crucial on the issues of redistricting and abortion. 

The outcome of Ohio’s races is likely to affect the partisan balance of the U.S. Senate. Of the 100 Senate seats, 35 will see elections during the midterms, including one special election. Democrats have the effective majority with Vice President Kamala Harris as the tie-breaking vote in the 50-50 split chamber.

All 435 House seats are also up for election. Midterm election results will determine which party has legislative control, ultimately determining who sets the agenda for President Joe Biden’s remaining years in office. 

Cincinnati City Council member Democrat Greg Landsman defeated longtime Republican Rep. Steve Chabot for the state’s 1st District congressional seat, according to Decision Desk HQ.

Incumbent Marcy Kaptur was also projected to win the 9th District by Decision Desk HQ.
