Ohio’s primary election, unlike many other states this year, is for all offices up for selection in the general election. There is also at least one school tax vote.
The most interesting, to me, anyway:
President. I saw my first lawn sign and bumper sticker today, both for Sanders. Kind of late, seems to me. I think Clinton will win.
Trump is leading Kasich in the latest poll. Should Trump fall off a cliff, I think that support will drift to Kasich; I just can’t picture Cruz winning Ohio.
US Senate. Portman is vulnerable, especially given the Supreme Court thing. However, the 75-year-old former Democratic governor and U.S. Representative Strickland is facing a primary challenge from a much younger Sittenfeld, a Cincinnati Councilman.
Boehner’s old district. The primary will select both the candidate for the special election and for the general election. This is the one I’ve been seeing oodles and oodles of ads for on TV, as the district is within Dayton’s TV market. A Republican will win both the special and the general, possibly the same Republican will win both. They are all emphasizing how conservative and anti-Obama they are.
Possibly the most interesting ad is State Senator Beagle firing a shotgun (three times!) while telling us how he will go to Washington to get things done.
