The Washington Examiner's joined America's Newsroom on Fox News Wednesday to discuss Republican candidate for Senate J.D. Vance's success in Ohio.
Vance emerged in a crowded Ohio primary field to win the nomination after being endorsed by former President Donald Trump.
"People were really excited," Zito said of Vance's win. She noted large crowds for Vance ahead of the win, attributing them to the "enthusiasm he had been building" since receiving the coveted endorsement.

According to Zito, Vance also visited counties that aren't traditionally given much attention.
Asked about Trump-endorsed Dr. Mehmet Oz, she said, "Not all Trump endorsements fit all states." She pointed to Georgia, where Trump's endorsement hasn't significantly boosted former Sen. David Perdue in his pursuit of the governorship.
Zito acknowledged that the endorsement initially gave Oz some momentum but remained skeptical as to whether it's enough to take him across the finish line.
"We'll see if Oz gets another bump," she said of Trump's upcoming rally with the famous TV doctor.

There are "a lot of moving parts," she warned. "I'm not quite certain that Trump's endorsement in Pennsylvania has the same impact that it did in Ohio."
