WASHINGTON (AP) - A handful of primary races for the U.S. House remain up in the air as Ohio votes are being counted to decide which candidates will compete this fall.

Three hours after polls closed, the winners in four House primary races were undetermined.

They include the 16th Congressional District in northeast Ohio, where former Summit County Councilman Pete Crossland was running against Cleveland businessman James Donenwirth for the right to face U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci (reh-NAY’-see) this fall.

All 16 House representatives from Ohio are seeking re-election in November. Twelve are Republican.

Earlier in the evening, GOP House Speaker John Boehner (BAY’-nur) cruised to victory over two tea party challengers.

Also winning their primaries were four other incumbents: Democrat Tim Ryan and Republicans David Joyce, Steve Stivers and Mike Turner.
