“You see, I think with this tremendous win we are having tonight all across Ohio, in some areas that very rarely have ever voted republican, there’s a signal that’s being sent that we can face our challenges, we can face our problems and have the courage to answer the bell,” Kasich says.

Also winning big were Treasurer Josh Mandel, Auditor Dave Yost, Secretary of State Jon Husted, Attorney General Mike DeWine and Ohio Supreme Court Justices Sharon Kennedy and Judy French.

Republicans also maintained their huge margins in Ohio’s House and Senate.

All 16 members of the U.S. House of Representatives from Ohio were re-elected.
