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

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

The two races will garner the most national attention on a day when four states hold primary elections: Kansas, Michigan, Missouri and Washington.

OH polls closed at 7:30 p.m., but the counting could take hours more.

Stay tuned to Breitbart News for live updates of all of the important races throughout the evening.

And in suburban Seattle, three Democrats vied in a jungle primary for the seat held by another retiring Republican, Rep. Dave Reichert.

President Trump campaigned for Balderson, a 56-year-old state senator, this past weekend in an effort to energize the GOP base, but some Republicans anxious that the president's appearance could have had an adverse effect by motivating voters who don't like Trump to come out for O'Connor.

Cory Bliss, executive director of the Congressional Leadership Fund, a Republican-aligned SuperPAC, said: "While we won tonight, this remains a very tough political environment and moving forward, we can not expect to win tough races when our candidate is being outraised".

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a leading voice in the GOP's shrinking anti-Trump wing, once represented the district in Congress.

The Cook Political Report, which monitors congressional races across the country, lists the Lowcountry 1st District, long held by Republicans, as a potential pickup for Democrats this fall.

The Ohio race - the last special congressional election before November - is one of two taking place on Tuesday into which President Donald Trump has injected himself, turning both into new tests of Trump's tactics and sway with Republican voters.

On his prediction of the special election: My gut and my sense from being out on the ground here is that O'Connor wins narrowly, but I would not put a large amount of money on that.

It's unclear how much Trump's support helped or hurt Balderson.

But the GOP candidate in the race, Troy Balderson, is a Trump supporter who recently welcomed President Trump at a town rally this weekend.

Over in Kansas, Republicans are locked in an internal fight for the governorship.

Trump endorsed Kobach, Kansas' secretary of state, on Monday.

O'Connor has dominated Balderson on the local airwaves.

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. Strong on Crime, Border & Military.

After Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's stunning victory in NY against Rep. Joe Crowley, progressives hope to demonstrate that their policies can win over voters in the middle of the country.

In Kansas' 3rd District, Bernie Sanders-backed labor lawyer Brent Welder is running in a six-way primary to take on Yoder. He'd join Sen. Tim Scott as the only black Republican senators if he did.
