Jim Renacci beats Betty Sutton in heated battle for 16th District

(WOIO) -

One of the more heated battles was in the 16th District.

Republican Jim Renacci beat Democrat Betty Sutton. Both were incumbents and redistricting put them in the same district.

"I plan on getting back there and working real hard to make sure the future for our children and grandchildren is different and better, because that's really the key here," Renacci said. "We have to be sure that our country changes direction."

Sutton, meanwhile, tells 19 Action News she'll never give up and couldn't have gotten this far without her supporters.

"This was a tough district and a tough race for everyone here has given their all on this campaign. Although we didn't win on the electoral side. It's certainly a winning campaign."
