Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich Losing by 5 to Rep. Marcy Kaptur

One of the biggest incumbent-vs.-incumbent congressional fights of the year was unfolding in Ohio on Tuesday night, with two veteran Democrats, Reps. Marcy Kaptur and Dennis J. Kucinich, battling in the newly redrawn 9th District.

The Kaptur-Kucinich battle for the new district along the state’s northern border was the first and one of the most intriguing of some 13 House contests pitting incumbents against incumbents, thanks to redistricting after the 2010 census.

In seven districts, two sitting Democrats will be running against one another, while four primaries will pit Republican incumbents. Two general-election races in Ohio and Iowa will feature a sitting Republican and sitting Democrat running in the same redrawn district.

As polls closed at 7:30 p.m., Mr. Kucinichs supporters huddled inside a deli in Cleveland while Ms. Kapturs contingent planned a watch-night party at a Toledo-area union hall.

via In Ohio, Kaptur-Kuchinich race among the most-watched – Washington Times.
