Rep. Tim Ryan (Democrats) and JD Vance (Republicans) won their party's nominations to run for Ohio's open Senate seat.
Vance apparently owns a sizable amount of BTC himself. He is also heavily backed by Peter Thiel, who recently stated his views on the moral imperative for Bitcoin adoption, and shamed crypto-skeptical financial leaders.
Vance was also endorsed by former president Donald Trump and beat Josh Mandel, who implemented the program to pay taxes in crypto, then he secured a footnote in crypto-politics history with a single tweet proclaiming his vision for Ohio: "pro-God, pro-family, pro-Bitcoin".
Ryan on the other side co-sponsored the Keep Innovation Act, a crypto-friendly bill designed to maintain reasonable tax reporting requirements. Ryan beat his challenger Morgan Harper.
