Ohio Special Election: Democrat Turnout 87% of 2016 Total — GOP Turnout Only 40% of 2016 Total

Voters in Ohio’s 12th district chose a replacement for the former Republican Representative Pat Tiberi in a special election on Tuesday.
Republican Troy Balderson ran against Democrat Danny O’Connor in the US congressional race.

Republican Patrick Tiberi defeated Democrat Ed Albertson in the 2016 general election 66% to 30% with 251,266 votes to 113,000 votes.

On Tuesday Troy Balderson defeated Democrat Danny O’Connor by less than 1% of the vote.

Balderson had 100,052 votes compared to Tiberi’s 251,266 votes in 2016 or 40% of the 2016 turnout.

Danny O’Connor had 98,364 votes on Tuesday compared to 112,638 votes received by Democrat Ed Albertson in 2016 or 87% of the 2016 Turnout.

This should concern Republican party leaders.
The GOP to do a better job or Trump is going to face a Democrat Congress ready to impeach him in 2019.
