Posted on 08/24/2018 11:03:08 AM PDT by JLAGRAYFOX

Congratulations to Republican, Troy Balderson, who has won the Special Election in the 12thCD, Ohio. The Trump supported Balderson, joined a bevy of other Republican "Mid-Term" Primary winners in Ohio, MIchigan, Kansas & Missouri. The Democrat Party, wildly hailed, "Blue Wave" has yet to surface.

I think Trump carried him over the top. Glad he could help.

I remember all of the networks whining that night because Trump tweeted to congratulate the winners.

Once again, he was 100% right and they were 100% full of it.

Even the CBS story below feels the need to spin this win in the most negative way for Republicans - pointing out the difference in the margin between this win and Trump’s win in 2016. Never mind that it was a primary election for a three month post that almost no one in their right minds would care about anyway (which, of course, meant Democrats came out to vote in droves because none of them are in their right minds).

AP called it about an hour ago. Of, course Balderson must run again for the same seat in November, but he will then have a fairly easy race and soundly defeat, Democrat O’Connor. O’Connor lost, and in the process spent a lot of Democrat bucks!!! I luv it!!! By the way, Republican, Governor, John Kasich endorsed Balderson, but barely helped him in his quest for victory. Thanks, POTUS, Donald J. Trump!!!

Kasich was claiming that he was decisive in getting Buckeyes out to the polls to vote Balderson.

The democrats tried hard to steal it. But they just couldn’t pull it off.

Haven't kept up on the story, but weren't there some 'ballots in the trunk' shenanigans going on here?

I'm still worried about the close margins and high dem turnout in traditionally deep red districts. We need a big time GOTV effort in November. Historically, it's the pubbies who turn out in mid-terms, but Trump has indies and dems in his base who often don't.

We need to get the word out that this is a presidential election because what the dems have in mind is impeachment.

Never heard of this guy, but after this week in Washington (Manafort&Cohen-fiasco), I will take ANY good GOP news I can possibly get, no matter what state it comes from.

I'm pleased with the result. However, growing increasingly concerned with the tight margins in so many races. It seems odd to me how evenly split the country is along party lines.

While I acknowledge there are enclaves where one party or the other dominates. And, there is a large percentage of the population that are independents or minor party members. But when it comes down to the popular vote in many elections nationwide, the vote splits almost 50/50 all to often. Seems unnatural to me.
