Sherrod Brown Keeps US Senate Seat

Senator Sherrod Brown

Democrat Sherrod Brown has won a new term in the U.S. Senate in Ohio after one of the most expensive and closely watched match-ups in the country.

Ohioans Reject Chance to Convene on Constitution

For the fifth time in 100 years, Ohioans have rejected the chance to revisit Ohio's Constitution.

Such a forum would have allowed debate on issues such as redistricting, term limits, casino gambling and gay marriage. Instead, voters rejected Issue 1 in Tuesday's election by strong margins in every county.

Republicans Secure Majorities in Ohio Legislature

Republicans will continue their control over the Ohio Legislature, having secured enough seats to give them an edge in each chamber.

The GOP had majorities in both the House and Senate going into Tuesday's election.

It was a longshot for Democrats to take control of the state Senate, where the GOP has a 23-10 advantage.

Republicans have a 59-40 edge in the House. Democrats were hoping to cling to enough seats there to keep the GOP from gaining any more power.
