Bernie Moreno has won the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate seat in Ohio. Endorsed by President Trump, the two recently shared a stage at one of Trump’s rallies.

Moreno is now set to go head-to-head against Sherrod Brown, a long-standing Democrat from Washington, DC.

Breitbart News reported:

Trump-backed Republican businessman Bernie Moreno has won Ohio’s Republican nomination for U.S. Senate and will advance to the general election against Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH).

The Associated Press called the Republican Senate primary at 8:35 p.m. ET, with roughly 25 percent of the vote reported.

Moreno bested State Sen. Matt Dolan (R-OH) and Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose (R) in Tuesday’s contest, marking another victory for the MAGA wing of the Republican Party over the GOP establishment.

FiveThirtyEight’s polling average showed LaRose leading the pack in November, with Dolan in second place and Moreno in third. But Moreno began surging late in 2023 and landed former President Donald Trump’s highly influential endorsement on December 17, which was a major blow to his establishment opponents.

However, Dolan surged in recent weeks after Moreno had jumped into first place. That was followed by an Associated Press smear piece against Moreno on March 13, making the contours of the race murky in the home stretch.

Moreno overcame a hit piece from the Associated Press alleging that an email address linked to him was used to establish an adult Friend Finder account in 2008. The outlet subsequently conceded that it lacked geolocation data to substantiate their claims.
