Trump campaigns for Troy Balderson in Ohio
Fox News ^ | Aug. 4, 2018 | Elizabeth Zwirz

President Trump on Saturday campaigned in Ohio for Republican state Sen. Troy Balderson ahead of a special House election next week, saying the Democratic opponent is controlled by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and favors open borders.

Running against the Trump-backed candidate is Democrat Danny O’Connor. Earlier Saturday, the president described O'Connor in a tweet as “a puppet” for Pelosi, “weak on Crime, Borders & your 2nd Amendment,” with a goal of raising taxes.

Before welcoming Balderson onstage, Trump described him as “really smart” and “a really hard worker” who would “fight for Ohio.”

Balderson promised to “fight alongside” the president on a variety of issues, and dubbed his opponent “Dishonest Danny O’Connor.”

“Dishonest Danny O’Connor wants to repeal those middle-class tax cuts. Dishonest Danny O’Connor wants to take away your guns. Dishonest Danny supports open borders and sanctuary cities,” Balderson argued. “Dishonest Danny O’Connor will fight against the policies that are turning our country around. And worst of all, Dishonest Danny O’Connor will vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker.”

LS, you are the poll tracker here. The latest poll closed this to 1 point. BS or real?

I get pretty tired of correcting the English language in these situations but it is not “the Democratic” azzhole running. It’s a DEMOCRAT. Sorry but the idiots need to get it right. Words have meaning folks.

Fully agree! There is nothing Democratic about the leftists. The party should only be called the Democrat Party.

Hope your sources are right, FNC is making a huge deal out of the 1 point thing. Basically say even a win is a loss.

PS; I don’t think the Hendrix is needed for your tag. Axis was the first album I bought with my own money

Only reason this race is close is because Balderson was hand picked by the establishment (Tiberi and his pal Kasich) and COC, who then ran negative ads against the more conservative candidate in the primary. By the way, Jim Jordon backed the other canadite, who the establishment proceeded to trash. Balderson barely won the primary even with the entire establishment behind him. Frankly, Trump was brought in to cleanup the mess created by the COC and its Cheap Labor Express whores Tiberi and Kasich.

I call BS. Bskserson was in real trouble with Trump and Jordan backers before Trump and Jordan should up to clean up the establishment’s mess. See post above.

Frankly, I was underwhelmed by Balderson, however, that said, no way I would ever vote for another Democrat rubber stamp!

Yup, I’m in this district and I can tell you Balderson has got to be the worst campaigner I’ve ever seen. Honestly, Saturday evening at the Trump rally was the first time I saw him actually talk. Most of his commercials are narrator slamming O’Connor.

That being said...I will crawl to the polls if I have to, to vote for Balderson. The alternative is unacceptable.
Of course if O’Connor pulls off the miracle win, the media will be breathlessly reporting how this is the beginning of the blue wave. Bullsh*t. If Balderson loses it will because he is such a horrible candidate and couldn’t bring out the masses. Also, if this district is in trouble, like the media loves to portray, then tell me why is O’Connor’s commercials pro-Trump? He actually talks about working with Trump and voting against Pelosi. He literally comes off almost as a republican light...Kasich-esque.

Unfortunately, have to vote yet again for another Kasich stooge as congressman. Tiberi was horrible and resigned to take post with Ohio Business Round Table. Anyone have the real skinny on that post?
