COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Columbus City Council President Andrew Ginther and Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott will face off in a November election to determine who becomes mayor of Ohio’s biggest city.

The two Democrats were the top vote-getters in Tuesday’s nonpartisan mayoral primary.

Ginther captured about 52 percent of the vote. Scott edged out Republican Terry Boyd to take the No. 2 spot. Democrat James Ragland finished fourth. There were two write-in candidates.

Ginther and Scott are vying to replace Michael Coleman, a Democrat first elected in 1999. Coleman announced late last year that he would not seek a fifth term.
