With about a month remaining before this year's election, talks of "blue waves" have been circulating national political coverage. Here in Ohio, most of the focus has been on the race for governor between Democrat Rich Cordray and Republican Mike DeWine. But many other state races will determine the makeup of the Ohio House and Senate, which is heavily Republican right now.

The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to vote Friday on whether to recommend to the full Senate that Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court be confirmed. 

The committee heard compelling testimony Thursday from Kavanaugh and Professor Christine Blasey Ford, who accuses him of sexually assaulting her in 1982, when the two were in high school. 

Mike DeWine had praised President Trump’s nomination of Kavanaugh in July, and then again at a debate Sept. 19 with Democratic opponent Richard Cordray.
