Now that's something you don't see everyday.

The primary is Tuesday and there's been no polls?

Pollsters can't figure out how to target the district

I think Kaptur wins by about 5 points.

If Kucinich wins, we all have to buy Gold a Polar INC.

Kucinich's home turf is reporting first.

I've read that turnout was kind of light in Ohio today. That might be to Kucinich's advantage.

Big chunk of Erie County just came in.

It looks like Kucinich is going down hard everywhere except Cleveland, but he's doing so well in Cleveland that he might just pull it out anyway.

presumably Kucinich will not be running for mayor of Toledo now

Everything left is Cuyahoga, where 43% of precincts are still out.

A bit premature to be calling it, I think.

No offense Craver, but I think you're grasping at straws because you want him to win so bad. Many are calling it like Sabato, etc.

Pathetic performance by Kucinich in Lucas County (Toledo). I know that's Kaptur's hometown but still. Kaptur was able to take 24% on Kucinich's home turf.

If I had remembered this race yesterday I would have switched prediction but too bad for me.

At least I didn't predict Veysey.

"maybe in Toledo politics, facts don't matter" will go down as an infamously stupid phrase to use in an ad when your district includes Toledo.

Dennis Kucinich went out and proved that it's possible to lose by 90% in a county

Conservative for America.: @ Craverguy
I think you are right that he has an excellent chance. So excellent that he might get 40%.


Wow. He was right.
