Ohio 12th Congressional District Special Election Results

But the race still hasn't been called

In Kansas, Kris Kobach, a conservative leader in the movement to restrict illegal immigration and pass more restrictive voting laws, trailed Governor Jeff Colyer in early returns for the Republican gubernatorial nomination.

The Cook Political Report, which monitors congressional races across the country, lists the Lowcountry 1st District, long held by Republicans, as a potential pickup for Democrats this fall.

Tuesday's elections could provide a window into the direction of the Democratic Party as the 2020 presidential nominating contest gets underway and party leaders debate whether to embrace a more liberal platform in hopes of turning out voters who sat out the 2016 election or make a centrist turn to court moderates and Republicans who are alienated by Trump.

Balderson leads O'Connor, 50.1% to 49.3%, with 99% of precincts reporting, according to the Associated Press Provisional ballots remain to be counted, and it's possible the race could be headed to an automatic recount, which is triggered when the margin is within 0.5%.

But Sarah Plunkett, a 75-year-old retiree from Overland Park, says she voted for Tom Niermann, in part because he is a teacher and supports common-sense gun control. Outgoing Republican Gov. Rick Snyder had backed Calley, but Trump is more popular there with the GOP base in the state.

Kobach has also been endorsed by Donald Trump Jr. Kasich has been an outspoken leader of the anti-Trump Republicans. Other key contests include a Democratic battle for governor in MI between a progressive and a mainstream candidate and a high-profile conservative challenge to the incumbent Republican governor in Kansas.
