All of Ohio’s incumbent U.S. House members easily won re-election.  As in the rest of the nation, Republicans did well in Ohio, with Republicans keeping their 12 seats to the Democrats 4 seats.   Overall, Republicans were successful in winning 242 seats, with a pickup of 13 seats thus far, to the Democrats’ 174 seats, with 19 races still too close to call.

Though neither of Ohio’s Senators were up for election this year, it was a critical election for determining control of the U.S. Senate.  Democrats held a slight majority coming into the race, with Republicans needing to pick up six seats to take the majority.  Polls and other factors led forecasters in early October to predict that the Republicans would win several seats and could win the seats necessary to take control.   With the Republicans picking up 7 seats, they take control of the Senate for the first time since 2006, with three seats still too close to call.  Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), the current Minority Leader, will likely be the new Majority Leader.  

All numbers and counts are as of the morning of Wednesday, November 5.
