Ohio House 16th: O'Shea (D) to be Replaced on Ballot
I just spoke to personal injury attorney and city prosecutor Michael O'Shea (D-Rocky River), who won the Democratic nomination in the 16th Ohio House District as a write-in candidate, and he informs me that he has notified the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party that he will be withdrawing from the race. He says that he is likely to be replaced on the general election ballot by Jennifer Brady or Connor Patton.
I checked the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections web site and they have already removed O'Shea's name from the official results of the May 2 primary. I also called Executive Director Cindy Marizette of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party, who emphasized that no official action has yet been taken but confirmed that O'Shea is out and that Jennifer Brady and Connor Patton are two names that have been mentioned as replacements.
