Voting is under way in Ohio's primary election that will cull the field of candidates for state and U.S. House posts.
The election also will determine the outcome of one statewide ballot issue, along with about 600 local issues.
In the race for Ohio governor, the Democratic leader of the state's most populous county was looking past a little-known Dayton-area activist to take on Gov. John Kasich in November. Most observers believe Larry Ellis Ealy, of Trotwood, has little chance against Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, the Democrats' endorsed candidate.
Voters will choose whether to renew a public works program that funds repairs and upgrades to roads, bridges and other local infrastructure.
