Ohio voters cast their ballots Tuesday morning.
The two sides have clashed numerous times in the state. In May 2008, the Libertarian Party won the state with the second-largest vote, receiving 3.5 percent of the vote, but losing to the Libertarian Party.
In 2006, Libertarian candidate Ralph Nader ran on the Libertarian ticket but lost the primary, while the Green Party and the Democratic Party both won, finishing with the largest shares.

At the same time, Siegel called on Obama and his fellow Democrats to take more military action in Syria if they wish to bring a lasting end to the war.
“That’s just absolutely out of the question because of how far the regime is willing to go to prop itself up,” Siegel said at the time. “The
