The race for three Clark County Commission seats produced two clear winners Tuesday night and one race that looks like it will be heading for a recount. In Montgomery County, two hotly-contested commission races went to Democrats. WYSO's Wayne Baker reports.
In Clark County, Republican Ross McGregor defeated Democratic challenger David Herier 55 percent to 44 percent.
Republican incumbent John Detrick took 56 percent of the vote to turn back his opponent, Democratic Douglas Geyer.
Democrats in Montgomery County chose Fred Strahorn to replace Rep. Clayton Luckie, who withdrew from running for re-election.
The Dayton Daily News reports that the county party's central committee voted 41 to 1 replace Luckie on the November ballot. Luckie dropped out Friday, a day after the Franklin County prosecutor said Luckie was under investigation. The prosecutor has said little other than that the probe doesn't involve bribery.
Luckie remains in office. He hasn't commented on his withdrawal or the prosecutor's statement.
