The Associated Press has called the race for Republican U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, saying he wins reelection to the U.S. House in Ohio’s 4th Congressional District.

Jordan, R-Urbana, who was first elected in 2006, has a national profile as the co-founder of the ultra-conservative Freedom Caucus. Prior to going to Congress, Jordan served 12 years as a state legislator and worked as a wrestling coach.


He raised just over $16 million for the 4th District race against Freshour, which was not seen as competitive.
