The 1992 United States Senate election in Ohio was held on November 3, 1992. Incumbent Democratic U.S. Senator John Glenn won re-election to a fourth term,[1] coinciding with Bill Clinton's narrow win during the presidential election. Glenn's voting percentage of 51% represented the worst performance of his four runs for the Senate, likely due to the presence of third-party candidate Martha Grevatt of the far-left Workers World Party.
