Today’s special election in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District is in a statistical dead heat between Republican Troy Balderson and Democrat Danny O’Connor. This congressional seat was vacated when Republican Pat Tiberi resigned earlier this year. According to a recent poll, the key to an O’Connor victory will be mobilizing the northern Columbus suburbs that account for 31% of the electorate. For Balderson to win, he will need to energize historically Republican parts of the district like Delaware and Licking counties.
