      U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Howland Twp., appears to have won his primary race for U.S. Senate, and Republican J.D. Vance is leading in his party’s for U.S. Senate, according to partial, unofficial results reported by the Ohio Secretary of State.

      Shontel Brown also has a 70% to 29% lead over Nina Turner with 14% of the votes counted.

      I guess that 11th hour endorsement from AOC wasn’t enough for Nina.

      I said earlier I would be surprised if Turner topped 40%. She didn’t even come close. I’m just glad I won’t have to see Shontel Brown’s face every time I turn on the TV.

      Looks like the Hillbilly Elegy guy is probably going to be my US Senator. Yee-haw. The Democrat is Tim Ryan, a contemptible neoliberal toad. I don’t know if there will be any third party candidates. If there are, I’ll probably vote for one of them.

      DeWine will be re-elected as governor. The Democrat, Nan Whaley, looks like a BIG loaf of white bread, or maybe dough. She won’t inspire the Black vote and she’ll get trounced. DeWine looks like a cute yard gnome, doesn’t he? If someone makes them I might buy one.

        Anyone doubting it has only to look at his wife.She practically wears high boots and carries a whip.

        I might  go so far as to vote for Vance.@ohiobarbarian.TimRyan is such a conservative nonentity.He’s never done a thing for SE Ohio.

          The irony is that so many liberals loved his book Hillbilly Elegy, about how screwed up his own family became when their economy crashed.

          Maybe I’ll read it before November.

          For governor, if Whalen makes the race a referendum on abortion, she has a chance. But she still looks like a fat Jen Psaki with dyed blond hair.

      @OhioBarbarian,

      You may already know…

      Ohio has realigned from a bellwether to a Republican state.

      Since 1968, every time the White House switched parties, the following states realigned to Republican or Democratic pickup winners:

      • 1968 Republican pickup winner Richard Nixon: * Alaska, Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska (statewide, 1st and 3rd Congressional Districts), North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Wyoming

      • 1976 Democratic pickup winner Jimmy Carter: Minnesota

      • 1980 Republican pickup winner Ronald Reagan: Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Texas

      • 1992 Democratic pickup winner Bill Clinton: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine (statewide, 1st Congressional District), Maryland, New Jersey, and Vermont

      • 2000 Republican pickup winner George W. Bush: Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisana, Missouri, Tennessee,and West Virginia

      • 2008 Democratic pickup winner Barack Obama: Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Virginia

      The 2016 Republican pickup for Donald Trump were with the following: Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Maine’s 2nd Congressional District 

      The 2020 Democratic pickup for Joe Biden were with the following: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District

      I would say that Florida, Iowa, Maine’s 2nd Congressional District, and Ohio have realigned to the Republicans.

      I would consider—depending on the map for the next Republican pickup winner—it may be that Arizona, Georgia, and Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District may have realigned to the Democrats.

      The best bellwether states are Rust Belt trio Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin—that is naming them according to population ranks—and coming up is North Carolina. (While did not vote with re-elected 2012 Barack Obama and 2020 Joe Biden, North Carolina was Obama’s No. 27 and Biden’s No. 26 best state. Obama and Biden carried 26 and 25 states.)

      I anticipate, because the Democrats are losing Ohio long term, they will be winning the presidency for at least 20 years (beginning in 2020) in which they end up not once carrying Ohio. And look for Sherrod Brown, the Democratic incumbent first elected in 2006, to either not run for possible re-election—or get re-nominated and unseated—in 2024. In 2025, Ohio is likely to have both its U.S. Senate seats in the Republican column.
