Westlake Republican Nan Baker defeated Rocky River attorney Andrew Meyer to win a third term representing the 16th District in the Ohio House of Representatives Tuesday.
Baker received 58.31 percent of the vote, compared to 41.69 percent for Meyer.
Baker, who served as a delegate for Mitt Romney at the Republican National Convention this summer, campaigned on making Ohio more business friendly to attract more jobs. Meyer criticized what he called the “hyperpartisanship” of Ohio government under the leadership of Gov. John Kasich.
