AKRON, Ohio– Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan won the Democratic nomination during the primary on Tuesday.
Horrigan defeated former police detective and pastor at Antioch Baptist Church Greg Harrison. According to the unofficial results from the Summit County Board of Elections, the current mayor received more than 78 percent of the vote.
“I am honored to have the opportunity take our message and vision forward into the November general election,” Horrigan said in a news release on Tuesday.
