A last look at the race for the Republican Senate nomination in Ohio
Our local Ogden outlets give us editorials on Ohio State Park Week but nothing on the election
It looks like Trump's endorsement of J.D. Vance may have made a difference. Here’s the most recent poll:

Hey Intelligencer, instead of publishing month-old Ohio editorials, why not keep us up to date with Ohio’s Republican senatorial primary?
