Kaptur Crushes Kucinich in Democratic Primary

Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) "clobbered" Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) last night, 55% to 41%, "her solid victory a stunning end to a mean-spirited primary between Democratic heavyweights," the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

"Kaptur and Kucinich found themselves in this fight after Republican leaders in Columbus redrew Ohio's congressional boundaries to account for the loss of two seats...But the petty bickering and onslaught of negative ads that typified the contest's final weeks suggested both incumbents were convinced of a close race that could turn on even the slightest of attacks or issues."
