Six Victory candidates advance in Tuesday primaries

Rep. Kelly Cassidy accepts the Victory Leadership Award at Victory’s 2015 Windy City Toasts.
Primary elections in three states Tuesday advanced six Victory candidates, according to unofficial results. All of the races were uncontested.
In Illinois, state Representatives Kelly Cassidy and Greg Harris breezed through their primaries with no opponent. Both legislators are outspoken champions of the LGBTQ community in the state.
Former North Carolina state Senator Julia Boseman – running for New Hanover County Commission – also had an easy time. With three open seats on the commission and only three Democrats running, the race was uncontested.
In Ohio, all three Victory incumbents had uncontested primaries: state Reps. Nickie Antonio and Tim Brown, and Summit County Clerk of Courts Sandra Kurt.
