"Families have disagreements, but at the end of the day you know we're going to come together and we're going to do what's best for the state of OH, these voters are going to come home for Mike DeWine". He said DeWine will be "a great governor with a heavy focus" on health care and jobs, dismissing Cordray as a "Socialist opponent" who was "a big failure in his last job". DeWine got 59.71 percent of the vote in Athens County compared to Taylor, who got 40.29 percent.

DeWine, who is now Ohio's attorney general, said drug education is one of his priorities to curtail the opioid epidemic. Mr. Cordray, who Mr. Trump referred to as a "socialist", also won his party's nomination by a large margin, earning just over 62 percent of the vote.

The endorsement puts DeWine in a unique position to be endorsed by both Trump and Ohio GOP Gov. John Kasich.

Former U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich, 71, has challenged Cordray for supporting gun rights and campaigned to his left on such issues as civil rights and environmental protection. "The negative primary on the Republican side has really cost them". Cordray will face Ohio's current attorney general, Republican Mike DeWine, in the general election race for the governor's job.

In a $10 million-plus ad war between the campaigns, Taylor, 52, has labeled the former US senator and lieutenant governor "DC DeWine" and painted him as a liberal the likes of Obama and Hillary Clinton. Elizabeth Warren, a Wall Street reformer and "progressive" champion who helped start the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that Cordray ran until past year.




U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci was chosen by Republicans to run against incumbent Democratic candidate Sen.

Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper says he thinks the candidates will unify behind Cordray now.

"Jon Husted and I are the ticket with innovative ideas", he said. This year, the wave is expected to break in the other direction, giving Cordray a decent shot in a state where Democrats are working to remain competitive. No matter who wins the primary on Tuesday, the race between Kucinich and Cordray appears to have created a new fault line between progressives in the state.

Democrats cited a poll conducted by the party-affiliated Public Policy Polling on May 6 and 7 that, they said, has Mr. Cordray up over Mr. DeWine 44 percent to 39 percent six months ahead of the general election.

Former Ohio Supreme Court Justice Bill O'Neill couldn't be reached after results came in but earlier in the day, he congratulated the other candidates for coming together to run a good race.
