Ohio Primary Yields Few Surprises

(Columbus, OH) This year's race for Ohio governor is a rematch of a down-ballot battle from eight years ago.  

Richard Cordray was nominated Tuesday by the state's Democrats and Mike DeWine was tapped by Republicans as candidates in November.  They met in the attorney general's race in 2010, a contest won by DeWine.  

Congressman Jim Renacci won the GOP primary for U.S. Senate, setting up a contest with Senator Sherrod Brown in November.  

Ohio lawmakers will be able to redraw congressional districts in a more fair way.  Voters statewide overwhelmingly approved Issue 1, a bipartisan constitutional amendment that sets rules for redistricting.  It was crafted to give the minority party more say in the process and curb the controversial practice of gerrymandering.
