Post Haste: Map pokes fun at Athens County's affection for Bernie Sanders; Statehouse race set

The map was made by a reporter.

Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Wednesday, March 16, 2016:

If you hadn’t noticed, Ohio’s primary elections took place Tuesday.

Ohio Governor John Kasich took home a crucial win on the Republican side, and Hillary Clinton won the majority of delegates in the Democratic realm.

The Post created several pretty charts and detailed analyses, if that’s your thing. political reporter Jeremy Pelzer crafted a faux map (right) of Ohio voters’ allegiances before results were released. Though the map was made in jest, he wasn’t too far off — save for OU undergrads, who apparently did not forget to vote for Bernie.
