Fox News can project that former state Attorney General Richard Cordray will win the Ohio Democratic gubernatorial primary and Attorney General Mike DeWine will win the Republican primary.
The 59-year-old Cordray faced former Ohio congressman and Cleveland Mayor Dennis Kucinich — in a primary battle Tuesday night seen as larger fight for the Democratic Party’s liberal base.
DeWine is projected to defeat Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor. Both are Trump-agenda supporters who have spent a combined nearly $10 million since December. DeWine entered election night with a double-digit lead over Taylor.
Corday was backed by Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Wall Street reformer and “progressive” champion who helped start the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that Cordray ran until last year.
Kucinich was backed by Our Revolution, the self-described “next step in the Bernie Sanders’ movement.”
The winner of the General Election winner will replace GOP Gov. John Kasich, whose term limit has expired.
