A former Ohio State University football star has won the Republican nomination in the race to succeed Rep. Jim Renacci in Ohio's U.S. House District 16.

Renacci's northeast Ohio seat is coming open because of his run for U.S. Senate.

Former Buckeyes and Indianapolis Colts receiver Anthony Gonzalez won a three-way primary Tuesday with state Rep. Christina Hagan and physician Michael Grusenmeyer. Both Hagan and Gonzalez aligned themselves with Republican President Donald Trump on issues such as building a border wall.

Gonzalez is the son of a Cuba-born Cleveland businessman.

He will face medical sales businesswoman Susan Moran Palmer, who won the six-candidate Democratic primary.
