Indiana, a solidly red state, has not seen much competition for its congressional seats this year. Sen. Todd C. Young (R) is up for reelection and has not drawn a competitive challenger in the GOP primary. The most hotly contested battle is in the 1st Congressional District, where several Republicans are vying for a chance to take down freshman Rep. Frank J. Mrvan (D).

Ohio also held primary elections today for Governor, Senate and House.

Senate

First-term Sen. Todd C. Young (R) is up for reelection and is a rare Republican Senate incumbent without Trump’s endorsement. Since gaining attention for defeating then-Sen. Evan Bayh (D), a member of a Hoosier political dynasty, in a 2016 upset, Young has solidified his position despite calling to certify President Biden’s 2020 victory and meeting with Biden on coronavirus legislation.

House

A few House primaries are competitive in this mainly Republican state. Several Republicans are vying to take on freshman Democratic Rep. Frank J. Mrvan in the 1st District. There’s also a competitive GOP primary featuring many-time candidate Michael E. Sodrel to replace retiring Rep. Trey Hollingsworth (R) in a heavily Republican district.

The Post estimated the lean of 2022 congressional districts using 2020 presidential results by precinct from Decision Desk HQ and estimates where actual votes at the precinct level were unavailable. Districts classified as ‘Strong Biden’ and ‘Strong Trump’ show where a candidate is estimated to have won by 15 percentage points or more. ‘Lean Biden’ and ‘Lean Trump’ districts had estimated vote margins between five and 15 points. ‘Close’ districts show an estimated margin within five points.
