Republicans worried over midterms as Trump and Pence scramble to avoid defeat in Ohio special election

Republicans worried over midterms as Trump and Pence scramble to avoid defeat in Ohio special electionRepublicans are concerned Donald Trump will limit candidates’ popularity in the upcoming midterm elections as he parachutes into Ohio, attempting to drag the party across the line in a once-safe seat. The GOP holds a razor-thin lead in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District as voters head to the polls for a special election on Tuesday in a constituency represented by a Republican for all bar two years since 1939. Democratic candidate Danny O’Connor has narrowed the gap to Republican rival Troy Balderson to just one per cent according to recent polls of the district, which Mr Trump carried by 11 points in 2016.
