Rep. Tim Ryan Announces 2022 Run for U.S. Senate in Ohio

Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan announced Monday that he will run for U.S. Senate in 2022. He becomes the first prominent Democrat to enter the race, hoping to succeed retiring Republican Sen. Rob Portman.

Ryan posted a campaign announcement video on Twitter. 

Ryan is in his 10th term in the House, the last five of which have been representing the Youngstown area 13th district. His 2020 reelection margin of victory was 7.5%, the smallest of his congressional career.  Earlier in that 2020 cycle, he was a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination but gained little traction. 

Ohio will lose a congressional district in upcoming redistricting, giving it 15 for the next decade. After reaching a peak of 24 districts during the 1960s, the state has lost at least one in each subsequent Census.
