The race for the 96th District of Ohio is now down to one man. Republican nominee Bob Mazeroski said he is dropping out of the race for personal reasons
Mazeroski won the Republican primary in Jefferson County by more than 70 percent.
Because of that, it seems Democrat Jack Cera will retain his seat in the Ohio State House.
Come November, voters who had hoped to vote for the Republican candidate should take care as not to be confused to vote for an ineligible candidate.
Elections officials say no coordinated write-in campaign for any Republican is permissible at this point in the election.
