The nail-biter representing out in Ohio’s 12 th Congressional District went even closer on Wednesday after 588 uncounted referendums were found in a neighbourhood of Columbus, according to county officials .
The referendums were tallied and Democrat Danny O’Connor gained 190 referendums on Republican Troy Balderson. Balderson is currently in the lead by 1,564 votes.
