Ohio Sen. 9th: Barrett (D) Drops Out

Thanks to the blog Black Cincinnati for linking to this story in the Cincinnati Enquirer's politics blog, reporting that State Rep. Catherine Barrett (D-Cincinnati) is dropping out of the 9th Ohio Senate District race. The dramatic announcement came at a meeting of Hamilton County Democratic party leaders last night to decide on endorsements in primary contests. The co-chairs of the party's nominating committee, State Rep. Steve Driehaus and Tyrone Yates, indicated that they would recommend a joint endorsement of Barrett and incumbent State Sen. Eric Kearney, just appointed in January when Mark Mallory left to become Cincinnati's mayor. At that point, as reported in the Enquirer blog, "Barrett got up in front of the group ... and said she was quitting the race. 'I want a healing process tonight,' said Barrett, who [received] a standing ovation from the group. Party leaders applauded; and also breathed a sigh of relief."

Kearney will face Maggie Nafziger (R-Cincinnati) in the general election.

UPDATE: The regular edition of the Enquirer reports the story here. The party voted to issue no endorsements among the five Democrats in the primary for the 2nd Congressional District, which came as a disappointment to physician Victoria Wulsin and teacher Gaby Downey since the nominating committee had recommended to endorse those two and not Thor Jacobs, Jim Parker or Jeff Sinnard. The party also declined to issue an endorsement in the primary for term-limited Barrett's present 32nd Ohio House District seat, where the mayor's brother Dale Mallory faces spirited opposition from former County Recorder Eve Bolton. However, the party endorsed former Cincinnati City councilman David Pepper over former Forest Park Mayor Stephanie Dumas in the county commissioner race.
