Kucinich takes a last swing at Kaptur as he concedes:

I would like to be able to congratulate Congresswoman Kaptur but I do have to say that she ran a media campaign in the Cleveland media market that was utterly lacking in integrity with false statements half truths, [and] misrepresentations. I hope that is not the kind of representation she would provide to this community. And I don't think the people of Toledo have any idea of the kind of campaign that was run up in the Cleveland area.

Preach it!

Wow I'm liking these results. Kucinich, Kilroy, and Schmidt all lose their seats. If this is any indication of things to come, I'll certainly like all the fresh faces in Congress this January.

Kucinich up 12225-11909 right now. Almost all of Kucinich's votes are from Cuyahoga County and almost all of Kaptur's are from everywhere else. If this keeps up, Kucinich will lose since less than half the district is in Cuyahoga County.

Turnout might be different.

Lucas:

Kaptur 94.2%
Kucinich 3.7%
Veysey 2.1%

Ottawa:

Kaptur 81.6%
Veysey 10.5%
Kucinich 7.9%

Huron:

Kaptur 73.3%
Kucinich 18.4%
Veysey 8.3%

Lorain:

Kaptur 49.6%
Kucinich 45.6%
Veysey 4.9%

Cuyahoga County:

Kucinich 72.5%
Kaptur 24.3%
Veysey 3.2%

Maybe if Kucinich hadn't attacked the city of Toledo, he would have done better there.

Politico has a story on the dragon lady's demise. The Reader's Digest version is that she had no friends, and the Mitten's operation in Hamilton County ballooned the turnout there of the voters least enamored with her. Heck, Schmidt even lost her home county of Clermont; the bulk of it was just too upscale suburban for her own good. It also didn't help that her new CD has more of Hamilton than its pervious iteration.

In her close GE races, of course, it was the rural parts that split tickets to a dangerous degree and these very voters that saved her. I guess that may be a name rec issue of Wenstrup's.

Yes, it is ironic, but the voters in question are more partisan (rural voters most places are more swingy), so while they don't like Schmidt, they would like a Dem replacement less.

Hahaha to Kucinich I say.

And I'm upset that Jean lost. Wenstrup is an Iraq Veteran, so that maybe the only reason why I may wind up supporting.


Though, if Jean runs as an Indy, I'll actually donate $$$$$ to her even though I live  in NC lol.

Why? I might agree with her politically, but Jean Schmidt was not a very good representative. If she was, she would still be in office. These sorts of things happen when there are better people for a job than the person who currently holds it. Such a pruning, as long as it isn't an ideological fight, is almost always a good thing.

There is a SuperPac going after incumbents in primaries.  They went 1 for 2 in Ohio, defeating Schmidt, but not Kaptur.

Unless they were supporting one of the also-rans in that primary (I think there were two)...

What about Krikorian? He was the "establishment" candidate, I suppose.

Supposedly they were supporting Kucinich.  8-termer over the 15-termer.

Inspired by the Masters, the Ohio Democratic Party is attacking Rep. Jim Renacci for belonging to an all male golf club. The GOP War on Women is on now!

Kucinich has a survey asking whether or not he should run in Washington.

Hm, I thought he ruled that out already.  Good to see, nonetheless.

It would be a cool thing if he ran in WA and won. I support him, but I don't know how badly local leaders would react.

It would be great if he ran in WA-1 b/c he has no chance of making it to the runoff and he'll only take money and support from the weakest Democrat in the race (Darcy Brunner).

Here is the primary map for OH-9 between Kaptur and Kucinich (in two pieces becuase the district is weird shaped):
Kaptur in blue
Kucinich in red




It is almost entirely a clash of media markets where Kaptur almost literally won all of here territory and Kucinich only held about 75%. There are a grand total of five precincts in the Lucas County portion where Kaptur had less than 90% of the two-way vote. There were more precincts where Kucinich literally had zero votes.
