Beatty Defeats Kilroy in Ohio's 3rd District Dem Primary

March 7, 2012

Former Ohio House Democratic Leader Joyce Beatty defeated former Democratic Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy in the 3rd District primary Tuesday night.

The Columbus Dispatch called the race for Beatty shortly after midnight on Wednesday morning. With 94 percent of precincts reporting, Beatty led Kilroy 38 percent to 35 percent.

Kilroy won the hearts of national Democrats by supporting the party despite while representing a tough district in 2009 and 2010, much like former Virginia Rep. Tom Perriello. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and her PAC donated $4,000 to Kilroy in the closing weeks of the primary and other congressional Democrats chipped in as Kilroy campaigned for a more Democratic seat centered in Columbus.

But Beatty represented Columbus in Ohio's statehouse, and she hit the district's airwaves before Kilroy in February, after which Beatty's polling showed the race narrow.

Beatty now becomes the prohibitive favorite to represent the 3rd District in Congress next year. President Obama carried roughly two-thirds of the new district in 2008.
