Ohio Republican Troy Balderson Declared Official Winner in CD-12 Race…

After two weeks of counting additional ballots Trump-backed Ohio republican candidate Troy Balderson was declared the official winner today by Franklin County officials.

Democrat Danny O’Connor said on Friday he called to concede to Balderson. The final vote count showed Balderson received 104,328 votes, or 50.12 percent, and O’Connor had 102,648 votes, or 49.32 percent, according to Franklin County.

(Via Fox) […] The Trump-backed Balderson had declared victory over Democrat Danny O’Connor on Aug. 7, but O’Connor had declined to concede because of the small margin.

According to the Associated Press, after final absentee and provisional ballots were counted, Balderson defeated O’Connor by 1,680 votes. […] The result fell 520 votes outside the window to trigger an automatic recount. (link)

    In 1865, Americans emancipated Democrats’ slaves.  Until now, we have not emancipated Democrats from their desire to enslave.

    Now we are doing that.

    It is hot, dirty, and dangerous work.  It is war in fact, against a force — desire — more powerful than armies.

    Ibrahim Hooper, Bob Mueller, Rod Pearlstein, George Soros, Tom Steyer, and their legions think they are attacking Americans.  The truth is, we are attacking them.

    The lever is Red China.  The fulcrum is trade.

    Deflating the Red Dragon is the key to emancipating Democrats — includes now RINOs, Socialists, and Jihadis — from their desire to enslave.  Like a typhoon, Democrats draw their energy from warm, turgid waters comprising Red China.

    Think Krugman, Friedman, NYT.  They lost The Soviet and are losing the Middle East.  Without Red China fueling their anti-Christian animus, they are impotent, exposed to self-scrutiny and moral economy.

    Deflate the Red Dragon and political leadership decisions in the USA favor Americans over Democrats.

    This is how to avert the catastrophe of slavery which threatens to overwhelm humanity.

      Or it’s much worse, straight-up Luciferian. China is China, but the cancer that has blanketed the Western world may turn out to be real life Satan worship in the highest places of government — and especially among their handlers, who are above the governments of the world’s nations.

      In which case the source of this great spiritual wickedness in high places predates 1865 by quite a while.

          As a volunteer precinct judge I can tell you there is a whole lot that goes on when those ballots at the end of the night are turned into the local county clerks office to be :”officially tabulated.” I think that is where most of the fraud happens and buckets of ballots somehow suddenly appear from the local union hall.

    The MORON who wrote the article decided to but this tidbit in it:

    Balderson’s victory buoys Republicans concerned over how Trump might be playing among voters, especially in political battleground states such as Ohio.

    CNN tried again to see if voters in PA were now going to be against our President because of what occurred earlier in the week. Once again they got reality slapped right across their damn face! The retired husband and wife tell you perfectly why they still support and would vote again for him (both are registered Democrats).

    At the end of the day, the old motto holds strong once again. MONEY TALKS AND BS WALKS!

    Don’t forget that the Advance Estimate for the 3rd Quarter real GDP rate comes out 10 days before the November Election. Look what the Atlanta Federal Reserve is forecasting as of today:

    Remember this: EVERY vote is critical, and primaries are important, as well as special elections. Those 520 people who took the time to vote took away the chance for the D-Rats to steal this seat with an automatic recount where boxes of ballots mysteriously appear that weren’t there the first time.

    Get out and VOTE like your future depends on it people. I and the wife did our part today in FL early voting.

    Because of the stakes, which simply is the survival of the USA, we have to not just beat the D-Rats, we have to totally destroy them; it’s really them or us. I prefer US!!!! MAGA

    Other than the fact that that the Rep candidate won, -HOW- is this good news? He barely squeaked by. LOOK at Pat Tiberi’s win margins in his previous elections, 66.56% against the Dem candidate’s 29.84% in 2016:



    • Zippy says:

      I suspect it’s the same here as it was with some other recent elections I’ve glanced at: the Dem voter turnout was barely below 2016 and the Rep turnout was WAY down from 2016. NOT ENOUGH REPS know how crucial these midterms are! That doesn’t surprise me since most voters don’t have 1/100th of a clue about the REAL scandals.

      They said not many Republicans showed up, about 40%, while over 80% Dems did. It was always a safe Republican district. They are supposed to redistrict to make Ohio’s districts more “bipartisan”, which means more Dems infecting everything. God help us, they voted for it, over 75% for it, last election. We voted against it.

    The reasons it was sssooo close – from what I saw here in central Ohio – were pure lies and cosmetics and Republican failures in grass-roots campaigning and the old “GOTV” problem.

    “Danny Boy” is a slightly plump 31-year old who looks very earnest about helping grandma and grandpa and orphans and puppies, (babies unborn not so much), and lied about how he will be a centrist, work with Republicans (!), get rid of partisanship, etc. etc. etc. Ads about him admitting to supporting Pelosi if elected did not come out soon enough.

    Balderson is 20+ years older, and something of a rumpled Republican stiff. The Dems I can tell you were fired up about this one and they are staying fired up, from what I can tell locally. I do not live in the district, but drive through it and many more O’Connor signs are visible in yards and on cars. If anything, they are angrier and more “pumped” than ever.

    The Dems were going door-to-door with voter registration forms and with absentee ballots: I cannot verify it, but I suspect Republicans had nothing similar.

    So watch out in November!
