Watch: Ohio U.S. Senate Debates


Candidates in Ohio's U.S. Senate race from both parties will debate Monday at Central State University.

The Democrat and Republican candidates will take part in separate debates.

Watch the Democratic debate from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and then the Republican debate from 7-8:30 p.m.

Watch the Democratic debate.

The Democrat debate will feature progressive activist Morgan Harper, information technology executive Traci “TJ” Johnson and Congressman Tim Ryan.

Watch the Republican debate.

The crowded Republican debate is expected to feature State Senator Matt Dolan, Cleveland businessman Mike Gibbons, former Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel, Columbus businessman Neil Patel, Columbus businessman Mark Pukita, former Ohio Republican Party chair Jane Timken and venture capitalist and author J.D. Vance.

The Republican debate comes after a weekend event in Columbus where Gibbons and Mandel had to be separated during an argument on-stage.

Candidates from each party are vying to replace Republican Rob Portman, who announced in 2021 that he was not seeking re-election.
