OH 12th Congressional District Special Election Results Show Close Race

  • On Tuesday in the last special election before the midterms Democrats might just snag another deep red Congressional seat

A Balderson victory would buoy Republicans concerned about how Trump might be playing in political battleground states.

Democrats looking for a shocking underdog win in a special election in OH on Tuesday are hoping not only to snatch a House seat in a historically Republican district, but also to energize their national effort to fight President Trump's agenda and reclaim a congressional majority.

"Suburban women in particular here are the ones that are really turned off", Kasich said. An O'Connor win would elate Democrats hoping for a Trump backlash.

A Monmouth poll last week showed the race was essentially a dead heat, down from a double-digit advantage for Balderson a month ago.

Tanya Hein, a 53-year-old seventh grade math teacher from Wichita, said she always planned to vote for Kobach but Trump's endorsement was "icing on the cake".

Laguarta has worked with PepsiCo for 22 years and served as the chief executive officer of the Europe Sub-Saharan Africa division. Indra's association with PepsiCo began in 1994 when she joined the company as Senior Vice President, Strategic Planning.

Democrats, meanwhile, have been attacking Balderson by casting his support of tax cuts as threats to Social Security and Medicare. Outgoing Republican Gov. Rick Snyder had backed Calley, but Trump is more popular there with the GOP base in the state. "VOTE TUESDAY!" Trump tweeted. Trump carried it by 11 percentage points in the 2016 presidential race.

Kobach, now the secretary of state in Kansas, has developed a reputation for his hard-line stance on immigration and his efforts to pass voter identification legislation.

The concern extends to Kobach's potential impact on two potentially competitive congressional races in Kansas, too - including Rep. Kevin Yoder's re-election bid in the 3rd District, a top Democratic target. Tuesday's contest will determine who takes over the unexpired term of former Rep.

Schuette will face Michigan Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer in November, who claimed the nomination in one of Democrats' top pick-up opportunities this fall. Other top candidates include Sharice Davids, an EMILY's List-endorsed former MMA fighter attempting to become the first Native American lesbian in Congress, and Tom Niermann, a teacher running a more moderate campaign with a long list of local officials' endorsements. Bernie Sanders and NY congressional nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who catapulted to fame when she defeated the No. 4 House Democrat in a June primary.
