Indiana: Ex-State Rep. Mike Braun (R) won IN-Sen (R), Mel Hall (D) won IN-2 (D), State Rep. Jim Baird (R) won IN-4 (R), Greg Pence (R) won IN-6 (R) and Liz Watson (D) won IN-9 (D).
North Carolina: Linda Coleman (D) won NC-2 (D), Rep. Walter Jones (R) won NC-3 (R), Mark Harris (R) unseated Rep. Robert Pittenger in NC-9 (R), and Kathy Manning won NC-13 (D).
Ohio: Richard Cordray (D) and Mike DeWine (R) easily won for OH-Gov, Rep. Jim Renacci (R) won OH-Sen (R), Danny O’Connor won for OH-12 (D), and State Sen. Troy Balderson (R) narrowly edged out Melanie Leneghan for OH-12 (R) (both candidates won for both the August special election and the November general). Anthony Gonzalez (R) won for OH-16 (R), and state Rep. Robert Sprague (R) won for OH-Treas (R).
West Virginia: In perhaps the most-watched race of the night, AG Patrick Morrisey (R) won the WV-Sen (R) nomination 35-29% over Rep. Evan Jenkins (R) with Don Blankenship (R) finishing well behind in 3rd at 20% despite reports of polling over the weekend showing him surging into the lead. Kendra Fershee in WV-1 (D), and Talley Sergent (D) in WV-2 (D) both defeated favored, establishment opponents. Unsurprisingly, State Sen. Richard Ojeda (D) won WV-3 (D), while State Del. Carol Miller (R) prevailed by 4 points in a WV-3 (R) race that was close between 3 candidates throughout most of the evening….
The last minute Don Blankenship ‘internal’ polling stuff turned out to be very wrong….
Republican’s can breath with the ex-coal miner boss out of running in West Virginia ….
Ex-Federal Consumer boss Democrat Cordray easily wins in Ohio….
