Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich lost his primary race last night to Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur. Kucinich and Kaptur were forced to face each other as a result of redistricting.
Kucinich’s former national campaign manager, Monmouth County’s Vin Gopal, was not involved in this defeat.
Gopal, a candidate for Assembly in New Jersey’s 11th district last year, is running for Monmouth County Democratic Chairman against Marlboro Councilman Frank LaRocca.
Kaptur will face Samuel Wurzelbacher, AKA “Joe the plumber” in the November general election.
