  • Donald Trump endorses Mike DeWine in the OH governor's race

DeWine, the state's current attorney general and former U.S. Senator, bested Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor in the Republican primary by almost 20 percentage points. Cordray led the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, created by Democratic Massachusetts U.S. Sen.

The field is set for this fall's OH gubernatorial race, with the Associated Press calling both the Democratic and Republican races early in the evening.

Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper says he thinks the candidates will unify behind Cordray now.

National Democratic groups have identified the OH governor's race as one of their top target races for 2018, and have already spent millions on digital and TV ads. And Cordray lost a four-way Democratic primary in 2000 for the seat held by DeWine, who was in his first Senate term.

In a tweet Wednesday, the president congratulated DeWine on his "big win in the great state of OH". "I'm not going to give away the game plan here, as much as I would love to", DeWine told reporters on Tuesday night, when he was asked to look ahead to the general-election campaign.

Polls throughout OH closed at 7:30 p.m. Voters on Tuesday also decided a number of unusually competitive congressional and state legislative seats. The effort is aimed at reducing the partisan manipulation of maps known as gerrymandering.

In Ohio's 12th congressional district, democrat Danny O'Connor (40 percent) will take on republican Troy Balderson, who had a narrow win (less than 800 votes) against fellow republican Melanie Leneghan.

Voting was steady Tuesday with no long lines reported by late morning. Braun is running, ideologically, as an ordinary Republican; he is an outsider by political biography alone.

"Jon Husted and I are the ticket with innovative ideas", he said.

But the most closely watched race - and, for Republicans, the most anxiety-inducing one - was in West Virginia, where Mr. Blankenship threatened to again torpedo the party's chances for success in a red-state Senate seat.

One of Ohio's most expensive, nasty and unpredictable primary seasons in recent memory is headed to a nail-biting conclusion. Brown, won the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican U.S. Rep. Steve Stivers.

Constance Gadell-Newton, the Green party candidate, also will be on the November ballot.

Mr. DeWine, meanwhile, played up his decision during the campaign to join other states in challenging the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act before the U.S. Supreme Court.

The last two statewide gubernatorial elections in Ohio - 2010 and 2014 -have been unmitigated disasters for the Ohio Democratic Party.

Four-term Republican state Rep. Robert Sprague, of Findlay, won the GOP primary for state treasurer over former Ashtabula County Auditor Sandra O'Brien.
