Tuesday was bad for Ohio Democrats and brought wins for Republicans on Capitol Square. 

But there were two races with a split decision. Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler reports:

Democrat Jennifer Brunner beat Republican Justice Judi French, giving Democrats three seats on the Ohio Supreme Court for the first time since 1993. Republican Justice Sharon Kennedy won the other race, defeating Democrat John O’Donnell. Republicans who lost five Ohio House districts overall in 2018 could pick up three this time – winning two Democratic seats that were open, and late results show Republican Mike Loychik beating incumbent Gil Blair of Niles, in an area that went solidly for President Trump. And in the Senate, incumbent Democrat Sean O’Brien lost to Republican Sandra O’Brien, with Republicans now dominating in that chamber 25-8.
