Cleveland investment banker Mike Gibbons announces his bid to run for one of Ohio's U.S. Senate seats in 2022.

Another Republican has thrown his hat in the ring for the already crowded 2022 Ohio U.S. Senate primary.

Cleveland investment banker Mike Gibbons says he’s running for the seat being vacated by Republican U.S. Senator Rob Portman. 

“We need to stand up to the cancel culture and the lies of those who seek to divide us," Gibbons says in a campaign ad.

Gibbons made his pitch in a campaign video featuring praise for former President Trump and talking points also espoused by fellow Republican candidates Josh Mandel, Jane Timken and Bernie Moreno.

Gibbons also ran for the U.S. Senate in 2018 but lost to then-congressman Jim Renacci in the primary. 

On the Democratic side, no candidates have announced they are running for the seat. Earlier this month, former Ohio Department of Health director Dr. Amy Acton announced she will not be running for U.S. Senate in 2022.
