Trump, Balderson claim victory in race too close to call

ㅤ"President Trump and Republican state Sen. Troy Balderson declared victory in a hotly contested House special election in Ohio on Tuesday, as the GOP candidate held on to a razor-thin lead in a race that remained too close to call.
ㅤBalderson was leading Franklin County Recorder Danny O’Connor on Tuesday by 50.2 percent to 49.3 percent, with 100 precincts reporting, according to a projection from the Associated Press. But at least 3,367 provisional ballots were yet to be counted, making the outcome potentially unknown for days.
ㅤUnder Ohio election law, any margin between the two candidates of less than half a percentage point would trigger an automatic recount."
