Ohio 12th District Special Election Reaction

Aug 8, 2018

The special election for Ohio's 12th district is too close to call.

Balderson leads Democrat Danny O’Connor by more 1,700 votes according to unofficial totals.

Today on All Sides, we hear from O’Connor and look at what a race this close means.
