Republican State Sen. Troy Balderson, 56, eked out a win in Tuesday’s down-to-the-wire special election to fill Ohio’s 12th congressional district after trailing Democrat Danny Lawyer much of the evening.

“I thank the thousands and thousands of volunteers who worked in this campaign and I want to thank President Trump and Vice President Pence and the big shoes without whom I would not have gotten through this process, Congressman Pat Tiberi,” said Balderson

Balderson needs to remember that HE OWES PRESIDENT TRUMP.

He also owes the arse Kasich, but in a different sort of way. It was only close because the NeverTrumper GOPe came out in droves to vote for the Democrat.

Thank goodness Kasich is not delivering the mail. We would see all the Republican ballots & advertising in the trash bin- undelivered.

Son of a mailman is a jerk of a man.

Must be fake news. Balderson ran against Danny O’Connor, not Danny Lawyer.

A win is a win no matter how close.
Ka-Sick must be held accountable for his treason
in this district.
There will be time to determine where the weak spots are
and fix them before the general election.
One thing for sure. Ka-Sick must be muzzled.

Faux Snooze refuses to call it for Balderson. They say there are 3000+ provisional, and early voting, ballots out there that need to be counted. And, it could take days, maybe weeks, to count those 3000+. Days, maybe weeks, to count 3000+ ballots?!!!!

“Balderson needs to remember that HE OWES PRESIDENT TRUMP.”

After watching the rally and last night, I have the feeling that Balderson is only lukewarm for our Donald.

“””””Balderson needs to remember that HE OWES PRESIDENT TRUMP.”””””””””””””

He could learn many things from the President. I watched him at the rally. He seemed dull, inexperienced and simply a speech reader. He needs to learn how to talk to the people, not just read to them.

Kasich has been doing the death dance since Trump dared to invade his sacred Ohio precincts.

Now he will eat crow and hopefully retire into oblivion.

This is a significant defeat for the RINO Trump hating Never Trumpers, the silver spoon/countryt club set in the GOP represented by dinosaurs like George Will ( Who has become George Won’t).

This was a huge win for president Donald Trump and a devestating blow to the deep state and the democrat socialist party , the DAZI party’!! Here is what it means. Collusion failed. Obstruction of justice failed, mueller failed . Comey failed. Rosenstein failed, sessions failed. Etc etc etc!! They all went down in ten flames like the Hindenburg . Oh the humanity, the pain , the suffering, the reality of defeat and the millions of dollars lost in the flames. It was a magnificent triumph by president Trump and to them” Suck it up buttercup!!

A good reason to end this kind of crap. Other than overseas military, I see no reason to allow these delayed tallies. Just get the votes in by the specified election date, and be done with it.

The more delay there is the longer whatever side (usually 'Rats) wants to cheat will have to "find" votes. The 'Rats stole the WA state governor's office for eight years by cheating in the 2004 election, stretching out the "voting" by two recounts to finally "win" by all of 133 votes. The 'Rats "found" supposedly lost votes several times in that fraud. Then there's the Al Franken "win" in MN sometime back.

as I understand it, they are waiting for any absentee or provisional ballots (not sure what that is), post-marked Aug 6 or before.

Dems are claiming there could be up to 5,000 ballots not yet counted (they are probably searching the trunks of cars....)

talking head on Fox said that it could also trigger a recount, which wouldn’t be completed until like Aug 18th? (if I remember what they were saying last night).

Still to close.....there are 3,300 ballots not counted which could give the win to the Democrat............since they are just over 1,000 difference right now

“AND No thanks to John Kasich who seems intent on hurting every Republican but HIMSELF.”

He's a typical useless and self-centered career politician, the likes of which should not be tolerated any further. It's all about him - though he is very practiced at projecting himself as a ‘man of the people’.

OK, now I have Dr. Suess ‘A persons a person no matter how small’ stuck in my head.
