Fox News Power Rankings: Ohio Senate race moves further in JD Vance’s direction

U.S. Senate candidate JD Vance received a much-needed shot in the arm on April 15, when former President Trump endorsed the “Hillbilly Elegy” author in the Ohio primary. Trump’s seal of approval catapulted Vance from third place to first in the final pre-primary Fox News Poll, but analysts still saw Vance as one of Trump’s riskier picks. Conservative firebrand Josh Mandel (who clearly captured the former president’s attention) and issues-focused Ohio state Sen. Matt Dolan both stayed competitive as the weeks wore on.
