Balderson-O’Connor OH-12 Race Headlines Contests in Five States

Kansas Republican gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach and his wife Heather take the stage to thank their supporters and send them home for the night after problems with polls in Johnson County Kan. delayed the final results until the early morning on We

According to CNN's Eric Bradner, there are roughly 70 House seats held by the GOP which are less conservative than Ohio's 12th District - considerably more than they would need.

The Democrat challenger Danny O'Connor.

Hours before polls opened, Trump again weighed in on Twitter, casting James as "a potential Republican star". Trump claimed House Democratic leader "Nancy Pelosi controls Danny O'Connor, whoever the hell that is".

If the O'Connor wins, or if Balderson wins narrowly, the media narrative will be that Trump is no king-maker and he can't save the Republican Party from an oncoming blue wave in November.

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

Balderson also had several stumbles.

In order to defeat a Democrat in this seat, Republican outside groups spent millions in ads and even brought in Trump himself for a last-minute rally in the district Saturday night.

Republican Troy Balderson is running with Trump's endorsement in a district the president won by 11 points in 2016.

Mendocino Complex now California's largest wildfire in history
RUSH FIRE (Lassen County), August 2012 Acres burned: 271,911 in California (43,666 in Nevada) Structures destroyed: 0 Deaths: 0 5. Authorities say it was triggered by the "mechanical failure of a vehicle" that caused sparks to fly in tinderbox-dry conditions.

With all precincts counted late on Tuesday night, USA time, Republican candidate Troy Balderson was approximately 1800 votes ahead, putting him on track for a victory of around one percentage point. Pat Tiberi resigned to lead the Ohio Business Roundtable.

Republicans focussed on mobilising their voters through negative advertisements portraying the Democratic candidate as a puppet of coastal elites while the Democrats' messaging centred on protecting access to healthcare and social security.

Under Ohio law, the remaining absentee and provisional ballots can not be counted for 11 days, the Secretary of State's office said.

The suburban Columbus district has been in Republican hands for nearly four decades and voted for President Trump by 11 points in 2016, so by all accounts the race shouldn't even be close. The suburban-rural splits were huge, with O'Connor over-performing normal Democratic numbers near Columbus and Balderson racking up strong margins in the district's smaller towns and rural areas. It's an enormous amount of exposure for their party and we don't see that for the Republican party. Ohio's 12th Congressional District, in the suburbs of Columbus, has had a Republican representative for 35 years, and has been largely in GOP hands since 1920. Three mainstream Democrats were among those vying for a chance at retiring Republican Rep. Dave Trott's seat in November.

Missouri, Michigan, and Washington state are heading to the ballot box today.

The Democratic race for governor in MI tested the electoral power of the party's progressive wing.

Whitmer defeated Abdul El-Sayed, a former Detroit health commissioner.

Kansas Republicans were fighting among themselves in a battle for governor, where Secretary of State Kris Kobach was trying to unseat Gov. Jeff Colyer. He submitted petitions Monday with more than 10,000 signatures for what could become the most serious independent run for Kansas governor in decades. Kobach was an immigration adviser to Trump's campaign in 2016 and vice chairman of Trump's commission to investigate voting fraud before the panel collapsed.
