Renacci, a Republican from Wadsworth running for governor, has been one of the most discussed names for the Senate race after Republican Treasurer Josh Mandel announced he was dropping out last Friday, shocking OH political observers.

When State Treasurer Josh Mandel dropped out of the U.S. Senate race last week, questions were raised about whether one of the Republicans in the crowded field for Governor would step up to run in that contest.

Should Renacci enter the Senate race, he would face a primary with Cleveland-area businessman Mike Gibbons. Renacci's campaign declined to comment.

He said Gibbons will stay in the race no matter what - and he'll remain the outsider.

"No one has done more to support President Trump in OH than Mike Gibbons has, including serving as a campaign finance chair for the President and no one will do more than Mike to advance conservative policies and the Trump agenda in the Senate", said Mr. Gibbons' general consultant, Mike Biundo.

"Voters want a true outsider in the race and are exhausted of career politicians who are always interested in their next job", Biundo said.

After Mandel dropped out, Gibbons quickly sank $5 million of his money into the campaign.

Renacci made the announcement on Thursday morning, saying he felt it was important to be in a position that allowed him to advance "the President's agenda for a stronger and more prosperous America". A slate of other Republicans have been mentioned by Republican operatives as potential candidates, including "Hillbilly Elegy" author J.D. Vance. In the past two days he has circulated the names of OH county GOP chairs and local Renacci leaders who are now backing him in the Senate contest.

But some Republicans in the state expressed skepticism of Vance's ability to introduce himself to voters in the state after being away for a while.

Vance has also been critical of Trump, which could be problematic in a GOP primary.

Though just a month ago, Renacci announced he would bring on Cincinnati council member Amy Murray as a running mate for governor, in recent weeks Renacci reportedly was waiting for an invitation to switch races.

The report calls the former Ohio State Buckeyes and Youngstown State Penguins football coach the "new consensus candidate" to challenge incumbent Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown this year.
