It's a special edition of Snollygoster, Ohio's political podcast from WOSU Public Media, as hosts Mike Thompson and Steve Brown recap the state's primary election results.

The former head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has name recognition and Democratic street cred for once being dissed by President Trump.
