La Raja Co-Authored A Piece Analyzing The Republican Primary For An Open U.S. Senate Seat In Ohio

Professor Ray LaRaja, along with Ph.D alums Mia Costa and Zach Albert write about the republican primary for an open U.S. Senate seat in Ohio won by Trump-endorsed candidate J.D. Vance, who earned less than a third of the votes in a crowded field. Their analysis finds that ranked-choice voting alone wouldn’t have significantly changed the result, but nonpartisan first round election, allowing the top four vote-getters to advance to the general election, might have made a difference.
