Other candidates included Larry Smith (2,291 votes), Howard Orton (481), Ray Bly (394) and Vlad Degan (305).

Jacobs will now go on to face incumbent Democrat Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger in the November general election. Her win came on the same night that

"It's time to ditch Dutch (Ruppersberger)," Jacobs said. "We know there are a lot more Democrats than Republicans in the district, but we know that we have a lot of crossover support. There were plenty of people who came up to our workers and told us 'we're Democrats that can't vote for you in the primary, but come the general election, you will have our support."
