  • Richard Cordray Wins Democratic Primary For Ohio Governor

According to the Associated Press, Democrat candidate, Richard Cordray and Republican candidate Mike DeWine are projected to win the Governor's race.

The Democratic race also includes two lesser-known candidates: state Sen. "I have prepared my whole life for this job, and when Jon Husted and I walk into the Governor's office on January 14th, we will be ready to go!"

Cordray is the former Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, appointed by President Barack Obama. Elizabeth Warren, under Obama, a Democrat, and Trump, a Republican. He featured Obama in his ads and campaigned with MA U.S. Sen. The feisty former nine-term U.S. Representative and Cleveland mayor energized voters with an anti-gun, pro-environment platform.

Kucinich said there are approximately 300,000 votes that remain to be counted and he'll have a better idea of the outcome when several counties finalize their total voter tally.


With 90 percent of precincts counted, Cordray had won more than 62 percent of the Democratic vote statewide, compared with Kucinich's 22 percent. The field includes Attorney General Mike DeWine and Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor on the Republican side.

Cordray's victory buoyed Democratic hopes of reclaiming control of a critical battleground state, where Kasich is term-limited.

DeWine, the current attorney general, is a 40-year veteran in the state and federal government and brands himself as a 'rock solid conservative'. Joe Schiavoni, 38, and former Ohio Supreme Court Justice Bill O'Neill, 71.

Republicans hope to hold on to the seat held by Kasich, a two-term governor and 2016 presidential contender.
