What's the primary election say about the Ohio Republican Party?

The Republican Senate primary in Ohio saw the most money ever spent on a race for an open Senate seat in the Buckeye State, and a cutthroat race for the attention and approval of former President Donald Trump — a stark difference from the campaigns of George Voinovich and Rob Portman. However, Gov. Mike DeWine was the victor in the gubernatorial primary, looked at as a member of the “country club conservatives,” despite receiving less than half the cast votes.

Curtis Jackson speaks with Gary Abernathy, a conservative columnist, to discuss where the GOP appears to be headed in Ohio.

Ohio Fun Fact

William Hubbard was an abolitionist and operator of a stop on the Underground Railroad in the years before the American Civil War. Around 1840, Hubbard built a house in Ashtabula. Hubbard's new home became an important stop on the Underground Railroad in Ohio. Runaway slaves and conductors on the Underground Railroad referred to Hubbard's home as "Mother Hubbard's Cupboard" and as "The Great Emporium." From surviving records, it appears that all of the African Americans assisted by Hubbard managed to escape to Canada successfully.
