OH 12th Congressional District Special Election Results Show Close Race

The day's races, like dozens before them, pitted Trump's fiery supporters against the Democratic Party's anti-Trump resistance.

A Monmouth University poll released last week showed a one-point race, with Balderson receiving 44% support to O'Connor's 43%, with 11% of respondents saying they are undecided.

People leave a polling station during Tuesday's special election in for the Ohio's 12th congressional district in Newark, Ohio, U.S., August 7, 2018.

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

The two parties used tactics in OH likely to be replicated in upcoming congressional races across the country. Early vote results heavily favored O'Connor, but Republicans had hoped that a vigorous ground game could make up the difference on Election Day.

Trump took credit for the Republican candidate's performance, calling it "a great victory", even though the contest could be headed to a mandatory recount.

A special election that tested U.S. President Donald Trump's clout and cost both parties millions of dollars in battleground OH was too close to call late Tuesday. It's an enormous amount of exposure for their party and we don't see that for the Republican party. Though Trump came in to campaign with Balderson on Saturday, the rural parts of the district didn't turn out in near the numbers as the suburban areas.

In Kansas, Kris Kobach, a conservative leader in the movement to restrict illegal immigration and pass more restrictive voting laws, was running slightly ahead of Governor Jeff Colyer with about 30 percent of the votes counted for the Republican gubernatorial nomination. He submitted petitions Monday with more than 10,000 signatures for what could become the most serious independent run for Kansas governor in decades. Senate Republicans had hoped to make MI, a state which Trump carried, competitive, but it's fallen down the list of top targets for 2018.

O'Connor and his Democratic allies railed against the tax plan, casting it as a giveaway for the rich that exacerbates federal deficits and threatens Medicare and Social Security. Bernie Sanders and ascending political star, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a NY congressional candidate.

The pro-Balderson effort has focused largely on motivating Republican voters by casting O'Connor as extreme.

In the MI governor's race, progressive favorite Abdul El-Sayed, the 33-year-old former Detroit health official vying to become the nation's first Muslim governor, faces former state Senate Democratic leader Gretchen Whitmer, who is considered the favorite in the race.

The five-way Democratic primary featured labor lawyer Brent Welder, who campaigned recently with self-described democratic socialists Vermont Sen.
