Ex-Colts WR Wins Ohio GOP Primary

Ex-Colts WR Wins Ohio GOP Primary

Former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez clenched the Republican nomination in Ohio's 16th Congressional District on Tuesday claiming 53% of the vote. He is hoping to replace Congressman Jim Renacci (R-OH), who is pursuing a seat in the Senate. The descendant of Cuban refugees graduated from Ohio State University graduate and went on to be a first-round draft who pick played just 40 games over five seasons with the Colts, often sidelined by injuries. He was last seen in the NFL as an offseason member of the New England Patriots. From there, the 33-year-old Cleveland native went on to earn his MBA from Stanford after leaving the NFL. Politically, Gonzalez aligns himself with Donald Trump on issues such as building a border wall, and he said that he approved of Trump's economic policies. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) endorsed his candidacy in December. He’ll face Democratic candidate Susan Moran Palmer in November. More here.
