Ohio Election Results 2022

The results are in and another election has come to a close here in Columbus.

Although Ohio certainly experienced a “red wave”, election night didn’t go quite as planned for republicans around the country. Although some races are still yet too close to call, the predicted overwhelming majority the GOP had been counting on did not materialize.

Here in Ohio, republicans took more than their fair share of elections, winning big at state and local levels.
