    Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Ryan Day. (Adam Cairns-The Columbus Dispatch) College football referees get things wrong every week. In Week 4, Michigan benefitted, Ohio State got a bad break and Notre Dame got screwed. It wouldn’t be a college football weekend without needing to scream at the television because the officials made a bad call. It’s part of the experience, even if it’s one of the worst parts. So let’s have a look at the worst calls from this week in college football. But first, we begin with an honorable mention to the Pac-12 refs in charge of the Oregon vs. Washington State game. The conference had to release a statement acknowledging their refs messed up by skipping a second down belonging to the Cougars. After a punt on not-fourth down, they went back and gave Wazzu a new down. It was a mess.Flag on the play: 3 worst calls from college football Week 43.

As an agriculture teacher, I will provide vital education to all youth. Every child deserves the opportunity...
    Ohio State football had so little problem with Wisconsin that Brutus actually took the hardest hit of the game when he got taken out by a hamster ball. Teams across the country had their hands full with upset bids in Week 4. Ohio State was not one of them. The Buckeyes were dominant in their Big Ten conference game against Wisconsin. In fact, they were so good, the Badgers could barely put a finger on them. The most vicious tackle of the day actually belonged to a fan participating in a contest during a media timeout involving hamster balls.

    Voyager Space, a space technology company, has selected The Ohio State University to host an analog laboratory at the Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. The analog laboratory, known as the George Washington Carver Science Park and Terrestrial Laboratory (GWCSP) will be a replica of the Starlab space station science park, which will allow researchers to practice missions and conduct experiments while on the ground. The park, named after the famous American inventor and agricultural scientist, will feature four main operational departments: a biology lab, plant habitation lab, physical science and materials research lab, and an open workbench area. The research obtained by this laboratory will help the Ohio agricultural community by preserving Ohio’s water quality, improving crop efficiency, genetics, and production, and enhancing the health of animals. Voyager Space selected a proposal from “Team Ohio,” which is composed of the university, the State of Ohio, JobsOhio, and One Columbus, to serve as the lead partner for the project, the first of its kind. “We’ve been working with OSU and other partners to bring this first-ever science...
    LeBron James looks to be in great shape as he prepares for the new season in a video posted by celebrity NBA trainer Chris Brickley - but a different post on LeBron's own Instagram has been drawing more attention. James posted an image on his Instagram story of himself receiving a hair cut in which he appears to be have shaved his head bald. He captioned the image with several crying with laughter emojis but not everyone was convinced the picture was genuine.

    Jim Harbaugh scored his first win over Ohio State last year, but Michigan is showing that they might be the new team to beat in the Big Ten.  Entering last season, Jim Harbaugh was no stranger to success with Michigan football, but there was a monkey hanging on his back with the claws dug into him. He needed to beat rival Ohio State for the first time in his coaching career. As we know, he accomplished that, essentially punching the Wolverines’ ticket to the College Football Playoff in the process. But the question then evolved from there into whether or not Michigan would be able to parlay the success in the 2021 season into sustained, long-term dominance in the Big Ten. It’s only been three games against vastly inferior competition, but the Wolverines are staking their claim as the new team to beat in the conference.Michigan football is overtaking Ohio State as team to beat in the Big TenIn the case of Michigan, this turning of the tables to be the top dog in the Big Ten starts with Harbaugh’s...
    Former President Donald Trump has loomed large over Republican primary races across the country, embracing a kingmaker role to steer the GOP's trajectory with his coveted endorsement. As the primary season came to a close Tuesday night, Trump finished out strong with about 92% of his preferred candidates crossing the finish line. None of his preferred candidates were on the ballot Tuesday, with the former president notably abstaining from the New Hampshire primary. In total, Trump has eked out 217 wins and 19 losses, per the Washington Examiner's tally of his endorsement record as of Sept. 14. At least three of his picks are still outstanding and will face their primary competition in a general election runoff. The tally is largely based on endorsements announced from his Save America PAC. His endorsements have ranged from safe bets on incumbents and uncontested contenders such as Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) to riskier picks, such as Katie Arrington, who was unsuccessful in her primary challenge to Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC). At least 61 of his endorsement triumphs came from races...
    President Joe Biden departed the White House Friday morning to travel to Licking County, Ohio where he'll deliver remarks at the groundbreaking of Intel's new $20 billion semiconductor plant.  It's a victory lap for the president, who steered a bipartisan bill through Congress to put $52 billion into the U.S. semiconductor industry - as a way to compete with China.  As part of the president's visit, Intel is expected to announce nearly $18 million the company plans to invest in Ohio colleges and universities to put toward workforce development.  'This includes partnering with community colleges across Ohio, the state's oldest historically Black university, and other institutions to train thousands of workers to work in Ohio's growing semiconductor industry,' a senior administration official said.  President Joe Biden arrives at Joint Base Andrews Friday morning to take Air Force One to Licking County, Ohio  President Joe Biden gives a finger gun salute to those on the tarmac at Joint Base Andrews Friday morning  President Joe Biden spoke with well-wishers as he departed the White House for Ohio Friday morning  President Joe Biden walks out...

    "What I want people to know is in this environment, do you have the guts to take on your own party? And from my vantage point for me, it's a resounding yes," Ryan responded.Why is this significant?Once the bellwether of presidential elections, Ohio is becoming an increasingly conservative state. Barack Obama won the state in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections. But Donald Trump managed to flip the state red, defeating both Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden by a whopping 8%. Ryan's admitted reluctance to embrace his Democratic political identity suggests he understands the shifting political winds hitting his backyard. In fact, Ryan is now publicly breaking with Biden on some issues. For example, after Biden announced his controversial plan to forgive student loan debt, Ryan said Biden's plan "sends the wrong message" to Americans. "[W]hile there's no doubt that a college education should be about opening opportunities, waiving debt for those already on a trajectory to financial security sends the wrong message to the millions of Ohioans without a degree working just as hard to make ends meet," Ryan...
    INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA – DECEMBER 04: Spencer Petras #7 of the Iowa Hawkeyes drops back to pass in the first quarter against the Michigan Wolverines during the Big Ten Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium on December 04, 2021 in Indianapolis, Indiana. (Photo by Dylan Buell/Getty Images) Big Ten football win total predictions for Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State and more as we pick over or under the vegas line for each team.  Particularly with some of the struggles out in the West, Big Ten football often felt a lot like Ohio State, Michigan, and maybe Iowa if their defense can get some turnovers, then a whole hodgepodge of teams jockeying for position in the middle. That feels less like it will be the case in the 2022 season, however. Sure, the Buckeyes and Wolverines aren’t going anywhere, but it feels like the overall quality of the Big Ten has been raised, and that’s without USC and UCLA having made their flights halfway across the country and into the mix. But how good will every team be this season? We’re making our...
    The Ohio Supreme Court has a 4-3 Republican majority, and three of the four conservative justices have deep ties to the Federalist Society. When the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, its 1973 landmark ruling that affirmed Americans' constitutional right to an abortion, it was a moment that had been decades in the making. And the organization that played a leading role in laying the groundwork for the court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization that overturned Roe continues to push its broader agenda in such states as Ohio, where it is working to make abortion illegal. As Ilyse Hogue, former president of the abortion rights group NARAL Pro-Choice America, noted in a story adapted from her book on the movement to abolish abortion rights, "The Lie That Binds," a great deal of the push to overturn Roe was organized by the Federalist Society, a right-wing organization founded in 1982. Hogue notes that as society was changing and more political power was seen to be transferred to those who were not the white Christian men who had held...
    Getty MIAMI GARDENS, FLORIDA - JANUARY 11: Chris Owens #79 of the Alabama Crimson Tide looks to snap during the first quarter of the College Football Playoff National Championship game against the Ohio State Buckeyes at Hard Rock Stadium on January 11, 2021 in Miami Gardens, Florida. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images) The Alabama Crimson Tide and Head Coach Nick Saban are on the recruiting trail once more trying to pry away players committed to other programs. This time it is the four-star tight end, Ty Lockwood who is committed to Ohio State in the class of 2023. Lockwood from Thompson’s Station, Tennessee had been recruited heavily by only two teams, that being the Tide and the Buckeyes. Lockwood is ranked the second overall prospect in the volunteer state and stands six feet and five inches tall and weighing in at 225 pounds. Lockwood who committed back in August of 2021 may have decided on a change of commitment after the Buckeyes received a commitment from Jelani Thurman, a higher-rated tight end from Fairburn, Georgia on July...
    William White, an 11-year NFL veteran who started at safety for the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl XXXIII, has died at 56 following a six-year battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Primarily known for his time with the Detroit Lions, who drafted him out of Ohio State in 1988, White had 20 interceptions over his career and was generally regarded as one of the tougher safeties in football before retiring in 1998 after his only Super Bowl appearance. He also played for the Kansas City Chiefs.  'I loved William,' said Lions executive Chris Spielman, a former teammate of White's in Detroit and at Ohio State. 'We shared experiences of joy and sorrow on and off the field. He was and always will be my brother.  'I am forever grateful for the special moment last year when he was able to be by my side during the Pride of the Lions ceremony at Ford Field. I can't wait to see him again when he will be free from ALS. May God's peace rest upon his family.' Former Detroit Lions player William...
    There’s really no offseason in college football these days. Even for fans it’s a year around passion. But that passion intensfies as there are reminders in the summer that the season is getting closer. One of those reminders is when the big conferences, the so-called Power 5 conferences, hold their preseason media days. The Big Ten’s version of media days is scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium. Here are a few questions for Ohio State and the Big Ten as that event approaches: Question: Can new defensive coordinator Jim Knowles fix Ohio State’s defense? Answer: If he can, Ohio State is a national championship contender. If he can’t, OSU could have some stressful Saturday afternoons and evenings. Ohio State struggled to defend against the pass last year. Opposing quarterbacks completed 61 percent of their throws against OSU, which ranked No. 87 nationally in passing yards allowed. The Buckeyes’ overall defensive numbers against the run weren’t awful. They were No. 24 nationally in rushing yards allowed per game (127.8) and No. 27 in yards allowed per carry...
    When J.D. Vance stepped onstage at a conservative conference last week, it should’ve prompted sighs of relief from Republicans hoping to see the Ohio GOP’s U.S. Senate nominee hit the campaign trail harder. There was just one problem: the stage Vance stepped on was in Israel, 6,000 miles away from Ohio. The spectacle of Vance gushing in Tel Aviv about Israel’s high birth rates—to a friendly audience stocked with plenty of conservatives but almost certainly no Ohio voters—seemed to distill for some Republicans everything that’s wrong with his campaign right now. Back in the Buckeye State, many are still waiting for Vance to show up, as the most critical phase of the campaign season draws near. Bill Cunningham, a fixture on conservative talk radio airwaves in Cincinnati for decades, told The Daily Beast that voters, party activists, and even statewide officials are telling him that Vance has been phoning it in. Vance is allegedly missing from many of the county fairs, party meetings, and campaign stops where candidates in this state are expected to be. “The Republican faithful are telling...
    An Indiana doctor who performed an abortion on a 10-year-old Ohio girl, has filed a claim for damages against Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita saying that he smeared her as an activist and falsely stated that she failed to report the procedure.  Attorneys for Dr. Caitlin Bernard sent the notice to Rokita on Tuesday seeking damages for security costs, legal fees, reputational harm, and emotional distress.  Dr. Bernard helped the child obtain the abortion last month after reporting the procedure to relevant state agencies before the legally mandated deadline. But last week, Indiana AG Todd Rokita questioned whether she had reported the procedure to state officials, bragging that he was 'gathering evidence' to see if the doctor could face 'a criminal charge.' However, he did not provide evidence to back up his claims.  Rokita has 90 days to investigate or settle the claim. After that period of time, Bernard can then file a defamation lawsuit. Dr Caitlin Bernard helped the rape victim obtain an abortion, and has filed a claim seeking damages for security costs, legal fees, reputational harm, and emotional...
    The mother of a 10-year-old Ohio girl who was raped and impregnated by an illegal immigrant has denied the charges, despite the suspect admitting to the crime. The woman, who declined to identify herself, claims her daughter is 'fine' after being forced to travel to Indiana to get an abortion.  The procedure was barred in their home state due to the so-called heartbeat bill, which bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. Gerson Fuentes, 27, of Guatemala, confessed to raping the young girl, however her mother alleges 'everything they're saying against him is a lie.' Fuentes was arraigned on Wednesday in Columbus where he faces a charge of felony first-degree rape of a child under 13. His bail was set at $2 million.  The mother (pictured hiding behind her front door) of a 10-year-old Ohio girl who was raped and impregnated by an illegal immigrant has denied the charges against Gerson Fuentes (not pictured).

    Before he questioned a news report of a 10-year-old rape victim being forced to go out of state for an abortion, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost should have at least checked the logs at Columbus Police Headquarters six blocks from his office. The Columbus Police Department is the biggest in Ohio. And its jurisdiction is both the state capitol and the seat of Franklin County, which year after year reports the highest number of sexual assaults on children 14 and under. So logic, as well as proximity, should have made the Columbus cops among the very first Yost sought out. A quick look in the most obvious place could have put an immediate end to a huge issue that would see not just the usual crazies but also the The Wall Street Journal editorial board end up calling into question an absolutely true account. The answer to the question of what would happen if a child became pregnant by rape under Ohio’s new law proved to be this: The foremost law enforcement officer in the state would lead a chorus...
    The Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said his office didn't hear a 'whisper' about the 10-year-old girl who allegedly had to leave the state in order to get an abortion, and said there's 'no biological evidence' of the case as a rape kit was not performed.  Yost, 65, told Fox News' Jesse Watters that a police report was never filed involving a 10-year-old rape victim and that the office 'works closely' with law enforcement, indicating that he would have known about it if one was filed.  'We have regular contact with prosecutors and local police and sheriffs, not a whisper anywhere,' he told Fox News.  'Even more telling, Jesse, my office runs the state crime lab. Any case like this, you're going to have a rape kit, you're going to have biological evidence, and you'd be looking for DNA analysis,' he said on Monday. 'There is no case request for analysis that looks anything like this.'  The case made national headlines soon after the Indianapolis Star, an Indiana-based publication, reported a little girl had to cross state lines to...

Assuming the Buckeyes can play a lick of defense, Ryan Day could lead the Ohio State football team to its second national championship of the College Football Playoff era this season. Ohio State should be the overwhelming favorite to come out of the Big Ten.

    Jack Sawyer, Ohio State Buckeyes. (Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images) Ryan Day’s Ohio State football team has every reason to believe it can win the national title. As long as the Buckeyes can play a lick of defense, the Ohio State football team is going to be an unstoppable force this upcoming college season. Ohio State shockingly missed out on the Big Ten Championship game a year ago. While the Buckeyes put on a fireworks show in their shootout victory over the Utah Utes in the Rose Bowl, anything short of a national championship this season will be met with great disappointment. The good news is the Buckeyes have the depth and talent at key positions to make this thing possible.

    Paranoid and possibly drunk conspiracy theorists yelling things on Facebook is no basis for a system of government. Welp, we knew it was coming. Thanks to Republican conspiracy theories and specifically Donald J. Trump's reluctance to lift a finger to respond to a new worldwide pandemic, the modern Republican base may soon be written into the history books as the people who brought back polio. And smallpox. And every other disease that used to fill graveyards with child-sized headstones. A new ballot referendum in Ohio has now been launched to ban the state from enforcing any vaccine mandates, in any capacity. This would be added to the Ohio constitution. The Ohio Capital Journal reports that the ballot measure was just approved by the Ohio Ballot Board, which now allows activists to begin soliciting for the 443,000 signatures that will be required to put the measure before voters next year. If it's approved, it isn't just COVID-19 vaccine mandates that would be affected. The proposed constitutional change would ban government, employers, and health care providers from requiring vaccinations or "discriminating" against those that...
    Drew Angerer, Getty Images When President Joe Biden delivers an economic speech Wednesday on his sixth visit to Ohio since taking office, prominent Democrat Rep. Tim Ryan will not be with him. Ryan, running for Senate, and former Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, running for governor, both cited “scheduling conflicts.” The two major candidates for the party are avoiding the event in an election year where inflation and gas prices have hurt the president and the party with the working class across the country and especially in Ohio, where today Biden will be speaking on those very subjects before a friendly — but not limitlessly patient — union audience.

    President Joe Biden is on the road again Wednesday when he heads to Ohio to try and woo blue-collar voters frustrated with high inflation. It's his sixth trip to the swing state as president and Biden will use his time there to tout his actions on the economy - an area where voters give him low marks as gas and food prices remain at record-high levels. Ohio has been trending red - Donald Trump carried it in the last two presidential elections - but it's also home to Biden-type voters: middle-class voters from union-heavy households whose swing-voting habits decide elections. Biden needs those voters to help Democrats maintain control of Congress in November's election. But questions are being asked - among Democrats themselves - on how much the president can do to help the party at the ballot box as voters voice their frustration with the state of the country. Democrats fret that could result in losing control of Congress.  President Joe Biden makes his sixth trip to Ohio as president on Wednesday as he tries to woo blue-collar voters...
    Ohio Democratic gubernatorial candidate Nan Whaley is highlighting her opposition to unborn children’s right to life, castigating Governor Mike DeWine’s (R) anti-abortion record and promising more permissive policy if she gets elected. Her reprehensions of her opponent come days after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion across America irrespective of the wishes of each state’s residents. The original decision rested on Justice Harry Blackmun’s insistence that a right to privacy implicitly contained in the Fourteenth Amendment guaranteed a woman’s right to abort her preborn child. Blackmun’s reasoning has since elicited disapproval from legal scholars of various political stripes insofar as the Constitution never actually refers to abortion.  Leftists like Whaley, a former Dayton mayor, are nonetheless incensed and have spent the weekend declaiming against the 6-3 Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling that reversed Roe. “Without the protections of Roe v. Wade, this is the future Mike DeWine wants for Ohioans,” she wrote in a Twitter post. “Now more than ever, we need a governor who will fight for...
    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State University has officially registered a trademark for the word "THE" after a nearly three-year battle to clinch legal branding access to a word that's deeply meaningful to the school's overall identity.The university in Columbus will use the word "THE" for branded products associated with the school and sold through its athletics and collegiate channels, OSU spokesperson Ben Johnson said Wednesday in a statement to CNN."THE has been a rallying cry in the Ohio State community for many years, and Buckeye fans who purchase official Ohio State gear support student scholarships, libraries and other university initiatives," Johnson said.The university filed an application with the US Patent and Trademark Office in 2019 after fashion designer Marc Jacobs also filed to trademark the same word, Johnson said.Last year, the university and the designer reached an agreement that allows both of them to register "THE" branded products for continuous use and license, Johnson explained."Like other institutions, Ohio State works to protect the university's brand and trademarks because these assets benefit students and faculty, and support our core academic mission...
    Ohio State University has won its legal fight to trademark the word 'The.' The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office approved the university's request Tuesday, recognizing OSU's claim to the definite article, one of the most common words in the English language. The school says it allows Ohio State to control use of 'The' on branded merchandise associated with the school and its teams, such as T-shirts, baseball caps and hats. Ohio State's name was defined in an 1878 law as 'The Ohio State University,' and supporters of the school frequently insist on using the full formal name as an expression of their loyalty.  Ohio State University has won its legal fight to trademark the word 'The' and will use the phrase on Buckeyes merch like the T-shirts seen above  Fashion designer Marc Jacobs (above) had filed an application for the word a few months before OSU, but the school and the retailer struck a deal to share usage For example, at the beginning of NFL games, ex-Buckeyes football players often emphasize 'The' when identifying themselves as Ohio State alumni during starting...
    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State University has won its fight to trademark the word “The.” The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office approved the university’s request Tuesday. The school says it allows Ohio State to control use of “The” on branded products associated with and sold through athletics and collegiate channels, such as T-shirts, baseball caps and hats. “THE has been a rallying cry in the Ohio State community for many years, and Buckeye fans who purchase official Ohio State gear support student scholarships, libraries and other university initiatives,” said Ben Johnson, the university’s senior director of media and public relations. He noted the university’s licensing and trademark program generates over $12.5 million a year in revenue, which helps fund student scholarships and university programs. Ohio State started pursuing a trademark in August 2019 after fashion retailer Marc Jacobs had filed an application for the word a few months earlier. The company and the university reached a deal in August 2021 that allows both parties to use the branding. The patent office rejected Ohio State’s initial application, finding the trademark...
    THE Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, was awarded a trademark for the word "THE" on Tuesday after a three-year legal battle that included a dispute with fashion brand Marc Jacobs.

    After the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, reproductive rights will be decided in the states (at least unless and until a Republican-controlled Congress passes a nationwide abortion ban). That means that access to abortion could be in the hands of state supreme courts, many of which have elections coming up. And that, in turn, means there are going to be some very expensive, hotly fought state supreme court races. Republicans have long understood the importance of down-ballot races like state supreme courts, while Democrats have only recently started focusing serious efforts on them. In 2019 and 2020, nearly $100 million was poured into these races—an all-time high, according to the Brennan Center for Justice. It’s likely to be more in 2022.

    SCIOTO — Scioto County Sheriff David Thoroughman stated that his Emergency Communications Center was contacted by the Star Community Justice Center (Franklin Furnace, Ohio), June 4, 2022, at 8:06 p.m. in reference to “2-3 male inmates escaping. The caller advised that the inmates escaped possibly by climbing the fence. The caller asked the dispatcher to notify the Ohio State Highway Patrol, who is the responsible law enforcement agency. Sheriff Thoroughman stated that deputies responded to the area, along with the Ohio State Highway Patrol, to begin the search for the escaped inmates. Deputies contacted a person at the Star Community Justice Center, who provided the names of the escapees and a description of a female that was near the fence line just prior to the escape. Upon the initial arrival of deputies, deputies stopped and spoke with a female asking if she had witnessed anything to do with the escape. She stated no. This female matched the description given by the employee of Star Community Justice Center. Deputies quickly relocated and detained her. The female, Allie Elizabeth Angelo, came to...
    A GUBERNATORIAL candidate in Ohio announced her intention to send out $350 stimulus payments to fight inflation. In an interview with the Scioto Valley Guardian, Democratic nominee Nan Whaley shared her plan to help Ohioans handle soaring costs. 1Nan Whaley, the Democratic nominee for governor in Ohio, is calling for $350 rebates "Ohioans are hurting right now – whether it’s from high gas prices to increased costs at the grocery store," Whaley said. "That’s why I’m proposing an inflation rebate of $350 per person, or $700 per couple, for middle-class Ohioans to offset high gas prices and other rising costs." Whaley formerly served as the mayor of Dayton, Ohio, and held the role from 2014 to January 2022.

    Ohio's Republican-run redistricting commission has re-passed a set of legislative maps that the state Supreme Court already ruled were an illegal partisan gerrymander favoring the GOP, after a three-judge federal court announced last month that it would implement those same maps if the state failed to adopt valid districts by May 28. This outcome was prophesied by the dissenter in the federal case, Judge Algenon Marbley, who said at the time that the commission would "do nothing" and "await a map with the desired partisan favoritism" rather than try to craft maps that comply with the Ohio constitution. In fact, the GOP commissioners did worse than nothing—they simply gave their approval to maps they knew were unconstitutional. Embarrassingly, the federal court majority (made up of two Trump appointees) insisted the commission would not run out the clock because "we must presume that Ohio's officials are public servants who still view partisan advantage as subordinate to the rule of law."

    Primary season is in full swing! This week on The Downballot, hosts David Nir and David Beard recapped several key primary races in Ohio and covered machinations regarding New York's vacant lieutenant governorship. They also welcomed Gaby Goldstein, a co-founder of Sister District onto the show. Sister District is an organization devoted to increasing progressive power at the state level across the country that endorses and supports candidates running in winnable races in flippable legislative chambers from coast to coast. The cohosts discussed with Gaby the enormous news that broke earlier this week—the leak of the Supreme Court opinion indicating that the court will likely end abortion rights by overturning Roe v. Wade—and how that will impact elections in 2022. You can listen below, or subscribe to The Downballot wherever you listen to podcasts. You can also find a transcript for this week right here. New episodes come out every Thursday! x Embedded Content Earlier this week in Ohio, all eyes were on the Senate primaries. On the Republican side, J.D.

Subscribe to our podcast, The Downballot! x Embedded Content Leading Off ● OH-09: Tuesday's night's biggest surprise came in Ohio's newly gerrymandered 9th Congressional District, when J.R. Majewski, a QAnon-aligned activist who attended the Jan. 6 Trump rally that preceded the attack on the Capitol, defeated two Republican state legislators to win the nod to take on 20-term Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur. Majewski edged out state Rep. Craig Riedel 36-31, with state Sen. Theresa Gavarone taking third with 29%, and will now face Kaptur in a Toledo area constituency that would have supported Trump 51-48—a massive shift from Biden's 59-40 victory in her current district. Majewski, who previously served in the Air Force, made news in 2020 when he used paint to transform his yard into a giant "Trump 2020" banner, a move that Trump himself praised on Twitter. Majewski soon...
    (CNN)This is the weirdness of the 2022 midterm elections: An Ohio Republican associated with the QAnon conspiracy movement -- and who painted massive Donald Trump murals on his lawn and put out a crass rap song on his campaign website -- will face off in November against a Democrat who could become the longest-serving woman in Capitol Hill history. It could be a close one Due to Ohio's newly drawn congressional map, the race is likely to be a tossup, according to professional handicappers.He went to the 'Stop the Steal' rallyJ.R.

Subscribe to our podcast, The Downballot! x Embedded Content Leading Off ● OH-Sen: The Republican primary for Ohio's open Senate seat—which weighed in at nearly $75 million—finally concluded on Tuesday with a win for Trump's endorsed candidate, venture capitalist J.D. Vance. Vance, the Hillbilly Elegy author and one-time vociferous Trump critic, reinvented himself as a MAGA diehard and defeated former state Treasurer Josh Mandel 32-24 for the nod to succeed retiring Sen. Rob Portman. Vance will take on Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan, who won his own primary 70-18 against former Treasury official Morgan Harper, in a longtime swing state that has lurched hard to the right in recent years. Just a few months ago, Vance's allies at Protect Ohio Values, a super PAC funded by megadonor Peter Thiel, warned that the candidate's poll numbers were in "precipitous decline." The group highlighted the previous fall’s assault by the Club for Growth,...
    JR Majewski has won the Republican primary in Ohio's 9th Congressional District and will challenge one of the longest-tenured members of Congress for what used to be a safe Democratic seat. Majewski, an air force veteran who painted a giant Donald Trump campaign logo on his lawn during the 2020 presidential election, beat out three other contenders for the GOP nomination in a closely contested primary. He can expect some help from the larger Republican Party in his bid to take down Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), who was first elected in 1982. Due to Ohio's messy redistricting process, her former solidly Democratic seat in Cleveland has shifted to a "toss-up," according to the Cook Political Report. OHIO REDISTRICTING MAY END DEMOCRATIC REP. MARCY KAPTUR'S 40-YEAR HOUSE CAREER Majewski has no previous political experience, and was vying for the Republican nomination against state Sen. Theresa Gavarone and state Rep. Craig Riedel. Riedel was the top fundraiser, with $435,000, according to the Federal Election Commission's most recent filings. Kaptur has raised nearly $1 million in her bid to...
    Joe Maiorana/AP Facts matter: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter. Support our nonprofit reporting. Subscribe to our print magazine.J.D. Vance, the Peter Thiel-ally and Hillbilly Elegy author, has won the highly contested Republican Senate primary in Ohio. Vance’s victory over a group of Ohio politicians, including former state treasurer Josh Mandel and state Sen. Matt Dolan, is more evidence that Donald Trump’s towering influence over the Republican Party has yet to abate.  At the start of his campaign, Vance shocked the media by adopting an explicitly Trumpian persona and an agenda that mirrored the former president’s policy positions. Vance initially struggled in the polls, hampered, in part, by his reputation as an erstwhile anti-Trumper. However, he became the frontrunner virtually overnight after beating out his opponents to receive Trump’s coveted endorsement and maintained that status through the election. If you’re curious to read more about his transformation, here’s a non-comprehensive list I pulled together of his craziest statements.  Vance will now advance to the general election, where he’ll take on moderate Democrat Tim Ryan. Although Ryan remains...
    (CNN)Voters are casting the final ballots in Tuesday's primary elections in Ohio and Indiana, kicking off a pivotal month of contests that will test the power of former President Donald Trump's endorsement. All eyes are on two Republican primaries in the Buckeye State: The Senate contest will determine the nominee to replace retiring Republican Sen. Rob Portman, while the gubernatorial primary will show whether Gov. Mike DeWine can successfully beat back two challengers from his right flank as he seeks a second term. With Democrats and Republicans fighting for control of Congress this fall, which will determine whether President Joe Biden can advance any aspect his agenda after 2022, nearly half of the most competitive US Senate matchups will likely be set by the end of this month. In Ohio, a reddening state that Trump won twice, the former President has backed J.D. Vance, the venture capitalist and "Hillbilly Elegy" author who was an unabashed critic of Trump in 2016 but now says his initial judgment of him was wrong. "It's OK to change your mind. In fact, you should...
    Voters are heading to the polls in Ohio Tuesday morning for the expensive and contentious primary election where it's still anyone's game to replace retiring GOP Senator Rob Portman.  Ohio's Republican race will put former President Donald Trump's influence to the test after he backed a candidate many GOP voters in the state claim isn't conservative enough – J.D. Vance. The wide open race shows Vance in the lead with 26.2 percent of the vote, according to a Trafalgar Group poll released Monday. But competitor and state Senator Matt Dolan isn't far behind with 22 percent and former state treasurer Josh Mandel earned 20 percent in the survey. 'Polls open in about 10 minutes here in Ohio, and I just want to say thank you to everyone,' Vance tweeted on Tuesday morning.

    Dayton, Ohio (CNN)After casting their early Ohio primary ballots last weekend, voter after voter -- those who grabbed Democratic ballots and Republican ballots -- identified the same issue as the most important to them: inflation. "It's food on the table, gas in your car, retirement. How are you going to deal with all these things when you don't get any additional income?" said Roland Winburn, a 75-year-old former Democratic state lawmaker. Montgomery County, the home of Dayton, in recent elections has served as a gauge of the nation's shifting political tides. It's the only county in Ohio to vote for the winner of the last four presidential elections -- one of just 25 counties in the United States to vote for former President Barack Obama twice, pivot to former President Donald Trump in 2016 and boomerang to President Joe Biden in 2020. The concerns of voters here could offer an early window into what will drive this year's midterm elections.
