DeWine to Face Cordray in General Election, and Other Primary Results

Ohio Democratic Party chairman David Pepper said, "The top candidates on our side are capable of running good races".

In Cordray's resignation letter, he highlighted the work the CFPB had done during his tenure, including $12 billion in relief recovered for almost 30 million consumers; stronger safeguards against irresponsible mortgage practices; giving people a voice by handling over 1.3 million complaints that led to problems getting fixed for vast numbers of individuals; and creating new ways to bring financial education to the public so that people can take more control over their economic lives.

Two veteran OH congressmen have won three-way Republican primaries.

O'Neill said he called Cordray on Tuesday and pledged his support in the upcoming election. Before his stint as head of the CFPB, Cordray served as an Attorney General, Treasurer, and Solicitor General for the Buckeye State.

They already have a campaign logo for their effort. That, in and of itself, must have been a challenge - there can't be too many mean-looking photos of the affable and boyish-looking Democrat out there to choose from. "You demanded change, and we heard you, and we want the same".

When DeWine and Cordray ran against each other for the Ohio AG seat in 2010, it was a close race: they were only separated by 1.2 percent.

The amendment limits how counties are split into multiple districts and requires more support from the minority party to put a 10-year map in place. "Ohio is going to move forward with the Trump agenda, and OH is going to get anybody who is an obstacle, including Sen".

Makes for a pretty good line in a stump speech.

Being a creature of Washington is apparently poisonous to a Republican candidate, although it didn't seem to hurt him much in this GOP primary.

"I wouldn't talk about this race in the past tense because the vote that came out is more of a party controlled vote", Kucinich said during an interview with Neil Cavuto Tuesday night, his first comments following a Fox News projection that Cordray will win the nomination.

For its part, the DeWine campaign sought to portray Taylor as a "phony conservative", while at the same time aligning the 40-year political veteran with Trump on issues such as abortion, law enforcement, and immigration.

What you can expect is the Democrats (not necessarily Cordray himself) going after DeWine who has essentially done nothing in his adult life but run for office.

DeWine started his career as a prosecutor. (Cookies were good too).

Cordray is also DeWine's predecessor, having served as Ohio's attorney general before heading the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) for almost six years.

And, then again, who decided that experience was a bad thing?
