Tuesday's HOT MIC

Tuesday's HOT MIC

Election update: 

Still no definitive results in the W. Va. Senate primary. 

Morrisey now has 36%, Jenkens with 28%, Blankenship with 19.5%, and Willis with 10.5%. With 52% of precincts reporting, it seems unlikely that 'Cocaine Mitch' Blankenship will be able to pull out a win.

In Ohio, the Senate race has been called for Rep. Jim Renacci, who managed to garner nearly half the votes in a 5-way primary.

Final results:

Jim Renacci 45.4%

Mike Gibbons 32.5%

Melissa Ackison 13.7%

Dan Kiley  4.2%

Don Eckhart 4.2%

Renacci will face uber-liberal incumbent Sherrod Brown in November. Renacci has assured me that his campaign will resurrect this 2006 campaign ad against Brown the General Election.

To this day every time I hear the name Sherrod Brown, I think "Sherrod Brown let us down."

In Indiana:

Greg Pence, brother of VP Mike Pence, handily won his race for the House seat formerly held by his brother with 65.3% of the vote.
