The verdict for Tuesday’s special election in Ohio remains uncalled with the Republican and Trump-backed candidate, Troy Balderson, holding on to a narrow lead over Democrat Danny O’Connor. The margin — out of 202,521 votes cast — was just 1,754 in favor of Balderson.
Balderson delivered a victory speech late Tuesday without a clear-cut victory, while O’Connor refused to concede. The election in Ohio’s 12th congressional district is the final test of a Republican versus a Democrat before November’s midterms.
But Ohio election officials on Wednesday “found” some 588 previously uncounted votes in a Columbus suburb, and after tabulating them, O’Connor picked up 190 more votes, cutting Balderson’s lead to 1,564 votes.
“The votes from a portion of one voting location had not been processed into the tabulation system,” the Franklin County Board of Elections said to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
There are still as many as 8,000 absentee ballots and provisional votes to count and O’Connor said he does not plan to concede, and on Wednesday asked supporters for more money.
🚨 6:05 PM UPDATE 🚨
We just netted 190 VOTES from Franklin County!
We’re confident DANNY WILL WIN once ALL the votes are counted, but we spent EVERYTHING we had on the Special Election.

History is repeating again this is how Al the molester Frankin got “elected”.
It happens in my democrat run county all the time. Every time there’s a close election where it looks like a Republican might be close they keep “counting” votes until the democrat “wins”.
I think we can expect Democrats to keep “finding” more uncounted ballots.
