Marcy Kaptur, Joe the Plumber will face off in November
Wed, 07 Mar 2012 11:17:47 GMT —
In another hard fought race, Rep. Marcy Kaptur has won the 9th district Democratic primary.
The long-term congresswoman will now face off in November with Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher, who won the Republican nomination.
"Our people are bread and butter people, they want to grow this economy," Kaptur said on MSNBC. "They expect the president and expect representatives in the Capitol to represent those interests strongly, and I think that's what they voted for tonight."
Kaptur took a 16 point lead over opponent Rep. Dennis Kucinich, who during his concession speech last night said she ran a campaign that promoted "half truths and distortions."
Candidate Graham Veysey only received 4 percent of the Democratic vote.
