It’s a close scoot in Ohio’s 12 th congressional region special election between Republican Troy Balderson and Democrat Danny O’Connor in their quest to supplant Pat Tiberi, who vacated. It is suggested that Balderson is ahead by a nose:
UPDATE: @NBCNews: #OH12 scoot remains too close to call due to current referendum weigh and provisional ballots that still need to be counted. Provisional votes will be counted within the next 10 days. The elect then must be certified by Aug. 24.

At the moment, there are over a thousand votes for Green Party candidate Joe Manchik, and Dems won’t be happy about it:If you’re a radical in #OH12 and voted for the Green party candidate, you may not be receiving a Christmas card from your Democratic pals this year.

Gonna lost something if the Green Party rates Democrats #OH12. If you demand a third party, fine, but the Green Party is never ever is going to happen. The only concept it ever reaches is helping to elect Republican.
