President Donald Trump made a last-minute push on Tuesday for Republican House candidate Troy Balderson as voters head to the polls in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District.
In an early morning tweet, the president appealed to the district’s voters to elect Balderson over Democrat Danny O’Connor in Tuesday’s special election. While not mentioning O’Connor by name, Trump clamed Balderson’s “opponent” is controlled by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, is weak on crime, the border, the military, veterans and the Second Amendment.
Ohio, vote today for Troy Balderson for Congress. His opponent, controlled by Nancy Pelosi, is weak on Crime, the Border, Military, Vets, your 2nd Amendment – and will end your Tax Cuts. Troy will be a great Congressman. #MAGA
