Here’s everything you need to know:

In Ohio, Trump has endorsed “Hillbilly Elegy” author J.D. Vance, who faces several other Republicans vying for the chance to replace retiring GOP Sen. Rob Portman. The winner will likely face Democratic US Rep. Tim Ryan in November.

In the race for Ohio governor, Republican incumbent Mike DeWine faces several primary challengers running to his right. On the Democratic side, two former mayors go head-to-head for their party’s nomination.

Indiana’s Democratic and Republican Senate primaries are both uncontested. Incumbent GOP Sen. Todd Young will face Democrat Thomas McDermott, the mayor of Hammond, in November.

There are also primary races for US House seats in both states that are taking place under new congressional lines that were redrawn in redistricting following the 2020 census. Both the Indiana and Ohio maps were drawn by Republicans, and Trump has weighed in on several of these House primaries, too.
