Election 2012

President Barack Obama has won Ohio again, capturing the swing state after a hard-fought battle with Republican Mitt Romney. Obama, who also won Ohio in 2008, claims the swing state's 18 electoral votes on his way to an electoral victory nationwide.

Democrat Sherrod Brown has won re-election to the U.S. Senate after one of the most expensive and closely watched match-ups in the country. The 59-year-old Brown beat Republican challenger Josh Mandel  despite an onslaught of attacks from conservative outside groups.

In the race for Ohio's new 10th District, Congressman Mike Turner won over challenger Sharon Neuhardt by a wide margin of 60% to 36%.  WYSO's Jerry Kenney spoke with Turner about his win.

Ohio voters have rejected a proposal to change the process for redrawing state legislative and congressional maps. Issue 2 lost after a fight that pitted voter advocacy groups and unions against business interests and the Ohio Republican Party.

There were nearly 200 school levies on the ballot Tuesday in Ohio. Several districts around the Miami Valley were seeking levy support from voter's to replace state aid ad revenue lost through tax changes.  The majority of these levies were rejected.

Gingrich Campaigning in Dayton, Columbus Today

Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is campaigning in Ohio in hopes of appealing to Republicans who will vote well ahead of the state's March 6 primary.

Gingrich says he suffered in Florida because Mitt Romney captured many early voters with TV ads that beat his rivals to the punch.

Ohio also allows early voting. The former House speaker says he does not want to repeat the mistake he made in Florida.

Republicans will vote Tuesday in caucuses in Colorado and Minnesota. But Gingrich plans to spend the day campaigning in Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus, Ohio.
