Tuesday's HOT MIC
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.
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."
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.
