Voters in Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Washington, and Ohio’s 12th Congressional District (special general election) go to the polls today to choose nominees. All host important House campaigns. Open Governors races are featured in Kansas and Michigan, and the Wolverine State Republicans will also choose an opponent for Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D). The Missouri Senate race is set, and Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) and Attorney General Josh Hawley (R) will both become official nominees today.
Central Ohio hosts a special House election that appears to be a close contest for what should be a Republican seat. State Sen. Troy Balderson (R-Zanesville) and Franklin County Recorder Danny O’Connor (D) are the two candidates. The winner takes office immediately to serve the remainder of resigned Rep. Pat Tiberi’s (R) final term in office. Mr. Tiberi resigned in late January to accept a major leadership position with an Ohio business advocacy organization.
