HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

Cindy Carpenter won her seventh straight Butler countywide race Tuesday night.

Carpenter easily secured the Republican nomination for county commissioner with 59.29 percent of the vote over 40.71 percent from her opponent, West Chester Township Trustee Lee Wong, according to unofficial results.

The Oxford resident, who also has served as the county's clerk of courts, campaigned on a platform that included attracting and retaining high-paying jobs, smart growth along the I-75 corridor and fiscal responsibility. The county, she said, will be out of debt by 2020.

She will face Middletown Vice Mayor Dora Bronston in the Nov. 6 general election.
