OH special election: Republican Troy Balderson wins tight race for House seat

Ohio's Secretary of State officially certified this month's apparent victory of Trump-backed GOP candidate Troy Balderson over his Democratic challenger Danny O'Connor Friday, reports Fox News.

Troy Balderson was certified the victor of Ohio's 12th Congressional District on Friday, denying Democrats the major upset they had sought ahead of the November midterm elections.

The results fall below the 520 votes that would trigger an automatic recount throughout the state.

But Balderson and O'Connor will face each other again in November for a full term. But the narrow margin of victory is a warning for the party as it struggles to retain control of the House in the November midterm elections.
