CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Christina Hagan, new-money school levies and Stark Parks: most were winners with the unofficial results from the Primary Election, where 59,000 votes were tabulated last night with more to come.

With 66-percent of the vote across the 13th Congressional District, Hagan will face Tim Ryan and Libertarian Michael Fricke in November.

Aaron Godfrey looks to be the Democratic candidate who will oppose Anthony Gonzalez in the 16th District.

Joe Biden won in Ohio, picking up 89 Democratic delegates; he won Stark County.

The contentious Stark Parks renewal levy looks to pass with 62-percent of voters saying yes.

New-money school levies were successful in Canton, North Canton and Perry, all at around 55-percent “yes”.

54-percent of Louisville City School District voters are saying “no” to new money there.

An additional Paris Township road levy looks to be going down, otherwise all other issues passed.
