OHIO: House Special Election Still Too Close To Call

The Associated Press reports:

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Republican Troy Balderson has declared victory over Democrat Danny O’Connor in Tuesday’s 12th Congressional District special election. Balderson is ahead of O’Connor by roughly 1,700 votes or 0.8 percent. Though all precincts are reporting, there has not been an official winner declared.

According to the Associated Press, there are at least 3,367 provisional ballots left to be reviewed. President Donald Trump campaigned for Balderson, arguing Republicans need to control Congress and casting the midterms as a referendum on himself.

The race is a test of voter sentiment before the general election in November when Balderson and O’Connor will battle again for the full two-year term.
