Ohio's voter turnout for Super Tuesday is well short of the record rate logged for the primary election four years ago, when there were hot contests for both Republicans and Democrats in the presidential race.
(UPDATED 12:49 a.m.) Veteran Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur has defeated longtime Washington colleague Dennis Kucinich in a bruising Ohio showdown made necessary by a newly drawn congressional map.
Kaptur is in her 15th term representing the Toledo area. She ran a campaign that emphasized her record of bringing federal money and projects back to the state.
(UPDATED 9:30 p.m.) Sandusky County voters weren't in the mood for levies Tuesday. Unofficial results show a narrow majority voted against a mental health board levy and a levy to fund programs for disabled people.
(UPDATED 9:20 p.m.) Margaretta Township voters have soundly supported a levy for the fire department, but they shot down a levy to fund road and bridge repairs, according to unoffiical election results.
