Republican Rob Portman has beaten Ted Strickland, a Democrat, in the race for the Ohio Senate seat currently held by Portman.

The race was tight between Portman, who had more money to spend, and Strickland, who had the major name recognition to make it past the estimated $30 million spent on attack ads against him.

Portman hedged his bets by distancing himself from Donald Trump on crucial issues. He once said he would decline the vice-presidential ticket if he were asked because he disagreed with Trump on so many issues, though he added that he would still support the Republican presidential candidate based on his economic ideas. Strickland’s campaign used those remarks to paint the Senator as someone without a strong stance.

All of Ohio's House seats have been decided. Republicans have held 12 seats, while Democrats have held four. Every House seat is up for election every two years.

Ohio voted for Republican businessman Donald Trump in Tuesday’s presidential election.
