Cordray, DeWine projected to win OH gubernatorial primaries

  • Both Ohio gubernatorial primaries called – establishment candidates will run to replace Kasich

By selecting Richard Cordray, the former OH attorney general and former director of the embattled Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Democratic voters made a moderate choice.

In the United States Senate race, Ohio Republicans chose Representative James B. Renacci to try to unseat Senator Sherrod Brown, whose old-school progressivism - opposing trade deals, championing labor - aligns with part of Mr. Trump's blue-collar appeal.

"He will be a great Governor with a heavy focus on HealthCare and Jobs", the President tweeted.

The final, unofficial count Tuesday gave Mr. DeWine 59.8 percent of the Republican vote compared to Ms. Taylor's 40.2 percent.

Richard Cordray will be the Democratic nominee for OH governor in November, according to the Associated Press, which called the race after Cordray locked in a large lead in early returns Tuesday night. Mr. Cordray, who Mr. Trump referred to as a "socialist", also won his party's nomination by a large margin, earning just over 62 percent of the vote.

Democrats see opportunity in the seat being vacated by Kasich, a two-term governor and 2016 presidential contender, while Republicans hope to hold the office.

Cordray defeated longtime OH politician and former Congressman Dennis Kucinich on Tuesday.

The rules, aimed at curbing partisan gerrymandering, will limit how counties are split into multiple districts and will require more support from the minority party to put a 10-year map in place.

Cordray is also DeWine's predecessor, having served as Ohio's attorney general before heading the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) for almost six years.

Republicans will choose between Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, a former USA senator, and Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, a former state auditor who's spent the year distancing herself from Kasich's administration.

In final ads headed into Tuesday's primary, Democrat Richard Cordray used his wife, Peggy, to lovingly push back against the perception that he's a bore.

The Democratic Governors Association wasted no time launching a web site targeting "Crooked Mike". And Cordray lost a four-way Democratic primary in 2000 for the seat held by DeWine, who was in his first Senate term.

A state senator and a former Ohio Supreme Court justice also competed.

Sittenfeld had been the OH grassroots progressive favorite in that year's Senate campaign challenging the establishment candidate, former Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland.

Elections chief Jon Husted (HYOO'-sted) says absentee voting is up from the same time four years ago. Neil Sroka, a spokesman for the progressive group Democracy for America, said in the same article that Kucinich has been "aiding the propaganda they're pushing about Donald Trump".
