Poll ‘Dead Heat’ in Ohio-12 Special Congressional Election Campaign Handouts 6 Aug 2018
08 August, 2018, 09:07
Voters on Tuesday are choosing would-be successors to Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, who can not run again due to term limits, and a GOP nominee to face third-term Democratic Sen.

The tight race comes as President Trump on Monday endorsed Kobach for the position, calling him a "fantastic guy" who would "be a GREAT Governor".
