Republican William Saxbe, seeking the U.S. Senate seat from Ohio, puts his finger to his nose on Nov. 6, 1968 in Columbus to illustrate to newsmen his victory margin over his Democratic opponent John J. Gilligan, Cincinnati Democrat. With most of the poling places reported Saxbe held on to a lead of more than 100,000 votes. He will be Ohioâäôs first Republican senator in 14 years.
