Rhonda Best defeats Mark Repp in GOP primary for Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court
Tiffin, Ohio — After a closely watched primary race for Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court judge, Rhonda Best is projected to come out on top and secure the Republican nomination.
Best, the incumbent judge, faced off against former judge Mark Repp in the Republican primary.
Both candidates campaigned heavily in the months leading up to the primary, with Best touting her record of fairness and impartiality on the bench, while Repp highlighted his experience and legal expertise.
In the end, it was Best who came out ahead with 73.78% of the vote compared to Repp’s 26.22%. The primary election saw a total of 5,244 votes cast, according to unofficial results from the Seneca County Board of Elections.
“I want to thank our community for the overwhelming support throughout this campaign. I am looking forward to continuing to serve the people in the jurisdiction of the Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court,” Best said in a statement provided to TiffinOhio.net.
Best will now advance to the November general election, where she will face off against Democratic candidate Jim Fruth, who ran unopposed in the primary.
