Republicans claimed victory in all three open seats on the Ohio Supreme Court in the 2022 midterm elections.

The results secure the court's decades-long red majority.

The race was considered one of the most important in the state due to the court's ongoing fight with the Ohio Redistricting Commission.

Now that all three seats are red, the court is likely to approve any map submitted by the commission.

Justice Sharon Kennedy beat Democrat rival Jennifer Brunner in the race for the Chief Justice seat.
