8:25 PM PT (Steve Singiser): As we still await the decisive final handful of precincts in Ohio, here is a pretty amazing stat from the downballot races: in both OH-01 and OH-02, with nearly all precincts in, both Democratic House primaries are 50/50. Less than 125 votes separate winner from apparent loser. Insert your own shopworn pablum about the majesty of democracy here...

8:28 PM PT (Steve Singiser): Ohio is starting to turn from a disaster for Mitt Romney to merely an underwhelming win for Mitt Romney. With 90 percent reporting, he has now moved out to a 5500 vote lead over Rick Santorum.

8:36 PM PT (David Nir): In the final uncalled Ohio congressional primary, the Dem contest in OH-09, Dennis Kucinich is looking utterly doomed. A straight linear projection has him losing 53-43 to fellow Rep. Marcy Kaptur. The margin in Lucas County (where Kaptur's hometown of Toledo sits) is a comical 94-4. Just shows that you really shouldn't dis part of the district you're hoping to represent. And in Ottawa County, Kucinich is actually in third place behind Some Dude Graham Veysey, who stands to get less than 4% of the district-wide total overall.

8:47 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray):
Here's a story: Rick Perry has received more votes in Ohio than the margin of error between Santorum and Romney at 6,559 votes.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
