Given that Seth Morgan didn’t win the early vote in his home county of Montgomery County, I’m calling this GOP primary for State Auditor.

Also early votes are overwhelming favoring Husted.  Unless these early votes are somehow unrepresentative of the GOP primary electorate at large, it looks like they’re cruising to an easy victory.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that there’s a good chance that more primary voters voted early in Cuyahoga and Franklin counties that will actually vote today.

We know that the Brunner campaign made a strategic decision to bank as many early votes as possible before there was movement in the polls.
