(CNN) - Tuesday's primary day in Indiana, North Carolina and Ohio.
And while the GOP Senate showdown in North Carolina's grabbing tons of national attention, House Speaker John Boehner's bid for re-nomination is barely getting a mention by media outside of the Buckeye State.
That's probably because the 12-term Republican lawmaker, who represents Ohio's 8th Congressional district, is easily expected to defeat challenges from two tea party candidates.
Boehner started primary day in his district by voting, before heading back to the nation's capital as the House of Representatives came back into session.
This primary season Boehner did something he hadn't done since 2010: run a couple of campaign commercials. Boehner closed the primary campaign with an ad showing the speaker with his wife Debbie, as he highlights his family's history in the district, a GOP stronghold in southwestern Ohio.
"It's been an honor to serve you. I want to continue this fight. I'm asking for your vote on May 6th," Boehner said in the spot.
Despite the attacks from the right on Boehner and others in the House GOP leadership in Washington, there's little evidence of any troubles for the speaker back in his home district. Since the start of the tea party movement in 2009, Boehner easily defeated a bunch of primary challengers in 2010, and he grabbed 84% of the vote in his 2012 primary victory over a tea party candidate. Boehner was unopposed in that year's general election.
While Boehner's campaigning has been low key, one of his challengers made headlines.
J.D. Winteregg, a high school and college French teacher, went up with a internet spot that used Boehner's name in a parody themed web ad that mimicked commercials marketing drugs for male sexual dysfunction. The spot accused Boehner of having "Electile Dysfunction."
While the ad got Winteregg attention, it also got him fired. The small Christian school where Winteregg worked as a adjunct professor didn't appreciate his entry into partisan politics, nor did the like the spot's tone.
