Weekly Reporter Roundtable

J.R. Majewski
Tom E. Puskar
J.R. Majewski, Republican candidate for U.S. Representative for Ohio's 9th Congressional District, speaks at a campaign rally in Youngstown, Ohio., Sept. 17, 2022.

Republicans need a net gain of five seats to seize the U.S. House majority, and the political tide is in their favor.

But at least one chink in the GOP armor is in Ohio, where a northern Ohio district gerrymandered to hurt longtime democratic representative Marcy Kaptur has produced a problematic opponent.

The National Republican Congressional Committee canceled nearly a million dollars in television ad time for J.R. Majewski after the Associated Press reported he had misrepresented his military service.

We consider the congressional equation in Ohio for the midterms and more on our weekly reporter roundtable.
