Latest local election results: UPDATE #3: WCS issue now failing by 100 votes; BLS issue failing, Sabina’s winning

UPDATE #3 (26 of 36 precincts reporting): The Wilmington City Schools ballot issue is now losing by about 100 votes, with the Blan Local schools also trailing and Village of Sabina issue winning.

Nan Whaley has won the Democratic nomination for Ohio governor, becoming the first woman in the state’s history to receive a major party’s backing for the office, according to the AP.

Ohio has never elected a female governor, and the former Dayton mayor figures to be an underdog against incumbent Republican Gov. Mike DeWine, who sewed up his party’s nomination despite angering conservatives with his aggressive pandemic mandates in a state that has swung to the right in recent years.

Whaley defeated former Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley on Tuesday.
