Two candidates ran unopposed in the primary: Antonio brings in 6,670 votes; while her Republican challenger, Matthew Deibel gets 1,851 votes.
In the race for the 13th Ohio House District, Democratic State Rep. Nickie Antonio will have company in November's general election. Political newcomer Matthew Deibel, a Republican from Lakewood, is her lone Republican challenger. While the contests really didn't matter too much, Antonio brought in 6,670 votes on the Democratic ticket, while Deibel 1,851 votes during Tuesday’s primary, according to unofficial election results. They will square off at the ballot box in November. Antonio, who previously served on Lakewood City Council, sponsored or co-sponsored about a dozen bills during her first term in the Ohio House. Deibel, who has not returned calls seeking comment, has not sought local office before.

Kucinich does well in Cuyahoga County, but Kaptur takes the votes on the rest of the North Coast.
A strong showing in Cuyahoga County for U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich wasn't enough to beat U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur in the race for the newly configured 9th Congressional district on Tuesday. With nearly all of the precincts counted around the North Coast, the Toledo Democrat defeated challenger Kucinich by roughly 11,000 votes, according to unofficial election results. Kucinich conceded the contest at around midnight at Rubin's Deli in Cleveland. This Democratic primary for the new 9th Congressional district shaped up to be a battle among the two veteran Democrats and political newcomer, Graham Veysey. As expected, the votes at western edge of the district — Kaptur's base near Toledo — came in heavy for her. In Lucas County, she got 18,984 …
Mitt Romney won in the cities and suburbs, perhaps just enough to hold off Rick Santorum voters in the state's rural areas.
Mitt Romney narrowly defeated Rick Santorum Tuesday in the Ohio Republican primary to claim most of the delegates and the giant symbolic prize that is the Buckeye State. While some votes remain outstanding, the Associated Press, CNN and other media organizations have called the race for Romney. Romney performed well in the state's population centers, including Northeast Ohio, but could not defeat Santorum in the state's rural areas, according to results with 96 percent of the precincts reporting. Romney claimed the counties that included Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and other big cities. Newt Gingrich played the spoiler role, collecting about 15 percent of the vote. Here are the unofficial results from the Ohio Secretary of State: …
