As reported by Advocate.com:
“Lakewood city councilwoman Nickie Antonio won the Democratic primary for District 13 in the Ohio state house Tuesday. The openly lesbian legislator is poised to become the first out state lawmaker in Ohio after the general election this fall.
District 13 incorporates Lakewood and parts of Cleveland. In November, Antonio is expected to defeat independent candidate Jeremy Caldwell, who filed for the race Monday.
The Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, which endorsed Antonio, reports on the win.”
