COLUMBUS, Ohio - Challengers have unseated the Ohio Supreme Court's lone Democrat and a Republican justice, meaning the court will have new faces but the same political makeup.
Republican Sharon Kennedy, a Butler County domestic relations judge, ended Democratic Justice Yvette McGee Brown's bid to serve an unexpired term through 2014. Kennedy would need to run again in two years to get a full, six-year term.
McGee Brown had been appointed in 2010 to fill a vacancy left when Maureen O'Connor became chief justice.
The court's new Democrat will be William O'Neill, a retired appeals court judge from Cleveland who beat Republican Justice Robert Cupp, of Lima (LY'-muh).
Republican Justice Terrence O'Donnell, of Cleveland, retains his seat after defeating Democratic state Sen. Mike Skindell in the third race.
