Ohio's 2nd District: There's comparatively little action on the Republican side. Had Rep. Steve Austria not chosen to retire, he would have run in a merged seat against fellow GOP Rep. Mike Turner, but he foreclosed that possibility by deciding to leave Congress instead. That leaves the Ohio's 2nd District as the biggest Republican House primary. Rep. Jean Schmidt has never done particularly well in primaries -- she's steadily done better after winning with less than 50 percent a few times, but she has never won more than 62 percent in the district's Republican primary. Still, she looks to be in a stronger position than in the past. Brad Wenstrup has tea party support and a super PAC has been hitting Schmidt on the radio, but Schmidt is outspending Wenstrup 3-to-1.
