Trump-backed Republican JD Vance is projected to win Ohio’s Senate seat against Democrat challenger Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), Fox News reports.
Ryan conceded the race to Vance.
This win is essential for the GOP to take control of the Senate. Vance’s win furthers the trend that Ohio is a reliably red state.
The Buckeye state voted to elect former President Trump in 2016 and 2020. Additionally, Ohio’s incumbent Gov. Mike DeWine (R) is projected to capture a second term in the governor’s mansion.
This is a developing story.
