Dem Rep. Kaptur captures another term, staves off GOP challenger Majewski in Ohio House race
( Fox )
Ohio Democrat Rep. Marcy Kaptur has won re-election against Republican challenger JR Majewski, The Associated Press projects.
The Ohio Democrat ran on a platform of creating jobs and affordable housing, highlighting President Biden’s infrastructure bill, Wall Street accountability, and campaign finance reform to repeal the Citizens United court decision.
Kaptur also highlighted her legislative wins and broke from other Ohio Democrats in that she embraced Biden’s presence on the campaign trail while others shied away.
However, that embracement was not for long, as in August, Kaptur began to advertise her "fighting back" against the Biden administration in Congress and that she "doesn't work for Joe Biden."
Majewski’s "America First" platform was centered around conservative policies, including voter identification, taking on Big Tech, and energy independence, and gave Kaptur a run for her money in the Ohio race.
