Marcy Kaptur elected to the U.S. House in District 9 in Ohio.

Fifteen-term U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur of Toledo took a commanding lead over her Republican opponent, Samuel Wurzelbacher, aka Joe the Plumber, leading 70 percent to 26 percent with more than 110,000 votes cast in the 9th District.

Kaptur crushed eight-term Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Cleveland to advance from the primary election for the right to represent the new 9th Congressional District -- an unusual gerrymandered configuration that hugs the Lake Erie coastline for 100 miles from Cleveland's West Side to Toledo.
