OH 12th Congressional District Special Election Results Show Close Race

Crystal ball time Where are we headed politically

Pat Tiberi, was never even supposed to be in play.

An O'Connor victory in the race to succeed retired GOP congressman Patrick Tiberi, in a wealthy suburban district that has voted Republican for decades, would be a massive shot in the arm for Democrats seeking to take back the House.

This special election in the 12congressional district is the last contest until the 2018 midterms, where Democratic enthusiasm is through the roof.

Polls are now open for today's Kansas Democratic and Republican primaries.

But Trevor Moffitt, a public health doctoral student at The Ohio State University who voted for O'Connor, said he felt Balderson's attacks on Democrats went too far.

President Trump campaigned for Balderson, a 56-year-old state senator, this past weekend in an effort to energize the GOP base, but some Republicans anxious that the president's appearance could have had an adverse effect by motivating voters who don't like Trump to come out for O'Connor.

The script for Ohio's special election is perhaps familiar: An experienced Trump loyalist, two-term state Sen.

Kasich, a leading voice in the GOP's shrinking anti-Trump wing, previously represented the district in Congress.

The Democrat candidate Danny O'Connor had not conceded defeat by 11pm U.S. eastern time. As of press time, there could still potentially be a recount, and provisional ballots are outstanding, but neither is expected to change the result.

Democrats need to pick up 23 seats in the House and two seats in the Senate to win majorities in those chambers and put the brakes on Trump's agenda. The Ohio Republican had been considered by operatives to be an underwhelming candidate.

Barcelona refuse to dampen Paul Pogba rumours
He goes on to report that United do not want to sell the "important" player as they see him as the franchise of the club. His agent, Mino Raiola, is expected in Manchester this week to negotiate the transfer of Pogba out of Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Trump-backed candidates in the Missouri and Michigan Senate races - Josh Hawley and John James, respectively - won their battles for the GOP nomination. Now, whether the Trump rally over the weekend blunted some of that momentum we don't have the polling to see right now.

Ultimately, the results may not even be known for a while.

Voters in OH and Kansas joined those in Missouri, Michigan and Washington state.

An early supporter of Trump's candidacy and the former chair of the president's now-shut down federal commission on voter fraud, Kobach is best-known nationally for his hardline stance on illegal immigration and for advising the Trump administration on immigration, non-citizen voter registration and the 2020 Census.

Schuette is going against Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, state Sen.

Senate contests in Missouri and MI were coming into focus as two vulnerable Democrats, Missouri's Claire McCaskill and Michigan's Debbie Stabenow, were expected to easily claim their party's nominations. Whitmer had the backing of labor groups and EMILY's List, and continues a streak of wins by Democratic women in primaries.

Conservative election analyst Henry Olsen predicted on Hill.TV's "What America's Thinking" on Monday that impeachment hearings against Trump will happen if Democrats take back the House and Senate in November.

Balderson told supporters in OH: "I'd like to thank President Trump".

On Twitter, Trump called Kobach a "strong and early supporter of mine".
