The first results in Ohio show that Trump has elected Senate candidate JD Vance with Matt Dolan, whose family owns the Cleveland Guardians.

  • Polls closed in the Ohio primary on Tuesday night, giving a first look at the strength that former President Donald Trump had over the Republican Party.
  • Trump-nominated Senate candidate JD Vance was in a back-to-back battle with state Sen. Matt Dolan, and former state treasurer Josh Mandel was third.
  • Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan, who is a Senate candidate, quickly finished the primaries by calling the race before 8 p.m.
  • By 8:15 p.m., Ohio Republican Gov. Mike DeWine had won the Republican primary as he sought a second term.

Polls closed in the Ohio primary on Tuesday night, and offered a first look at former President Donald Trump’s entry into the Republican Party in his 2022 term.

In the carefully watched Republican Senate primaries, the early return showed Hillbilly Elegy author Hill Collar with state Sen. Matt Dolan, whose billionaire family owns the Cleveland Guardians.

With 14% of the vote counted, Vance received 25.5% of the vote, while Dolan received 23.5%.

Last month, former President Donald Trump announced that he would accept Vance – despite criticism of former President Vance in the past.

The first round featured JD Vance colliding with state senator Matt Dolan (pictured), whose family owns the Cleveland Guardians baseball team. When Dolan announced his bid for the Senate in September, Trump said he would not support the senator over the name change of the Guardians.

Trump vowed that Dolan would never support him by referring to the Guardians ’name change.

“Anyone who once changed the name of the Cleveland Indians to the Cleveland Guardians should not submit it to the U.S. Senate, which represents the Great People of Ohio,” Trump said in September when Dolan entered the race.

Former state treasurer Josh Mandel was followed by Vance and Dolan in third place, businessman Mike Gibbons in fourth and former Republican Party State official Jane Timken in fifth.

Democrat Rep. Tim Ryan easily won the Ohio Senate Democratic primary, winning nearly 70 percent of the vote, closing the polls at 7:30 p.m.

The race was scheduled for Ryan at 8 p.m.

Ryan Morgan was speaking out against Harper and Traci Johnson.

Moderate Rob Portman is expected to overturn the seat occupied by retired Republican senator.

At around 8:15 p.m., Republican prime ministers were called by state governor Mike DeWine, who was facing opposition from his political right.

With 15 percent reported, the race was called, with DeWine getting 56.9 percent of the vote, Jim Renacci with 25.6 percent and Joe Blyston with 15.4.

Two well-known Democrat mayors — former mayor of Dayton, John Whaley, and former mayor of Cincinnati, John Cranley — are vying to vote against DeWine or one of his Republican rivals in the fall vote.

The early returns gave Whaley a big advantage, gaining 66.6 percent from Cranley’s 33.4 percent with 7 percent.
