With all votes counted in Ohio’s 12th congressional district special election on Tuesday, Republican candidate Troy Balderson narrowly defeated Democratic challenger Danny O’Connor. The margin — out of 202,521 votes cast — was just 1,754 in favor of Balderson.

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.

Both Balderson and President Trump, who endorsed him, have declared victory, but there are still as many as 8,000 absentee ballots and provisional votes to count, election officials say. Still, O’Connor said he does not plan to concede, and on Wednesday asked supporters for more money.

If the margin at the end of all counting is 0.5% or less, elections officials will conduct an automatic recount.

But until then, you can expect Democrats to keep “finding” more uncounted ballots.

    JUST LIKE WA., STATE GOVERNORS RACE THE DEM’S CHEAT BY RECOUNTING UNTIL THEY WIN ONE COUNT THEN DECLARE THEMSELVES THE WINNER. AND THEY ALWAYS FIND NEW UNCOUNTED VOTES UNTIL THEY WIN TOO.

      As I have said in the past ,this is how Democrats play the game . They use every crooked means they can until they think they have won. Killary and her followers cheated so bad they registered thousands of illegals and hundreds of dead people and when that wasn’t enough they bussed people to multiple precincts and stuffed ballot box’s where ever they could. It was Elizabeth Warren who couldn’t except defeat an called for the infamous re-count that not only proved Trump won the electorate but the popular vote also.

      yes If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place. CLAPPER’S OWN CONFESSION

    This is the way the Dumbocrats work. They will continue to “find” ballots and keep recounting, and recounting, and recounting until they win. They are lying, thieving, crooked assholes. Why is it that all the dead people who vote in elections are always Dumbocrats?

    No one should be surprised by these “votes being found”.Proud not to be from Ohio but we had the hanging chad here in Florida a few years back and the military absentee votes not counted so it looks like this is par for the course with elections.You would think in this great nation we would see our votes counted correctly and in a timely way.

    This election in O HI HO tells us one important thing…that there are at least 50% of O HI HO voters are showing their love for Communism by voting for a demonicrat. You clowns that voted for the demonicrat are dumber than a brick. After all the corruption the demonicrat party has been shown to own and you STILL voted for these useless demomnicrat dingleberries ! And for those of you that are total demonicrat city people, ask a farmer what a dingleberry is !

    Today Rush Limbaugh spoke about there being 180 people voting that were over age 116 (yes, 116) in District 12, presumably Democrats, of course.

    Care to take any bets as to how many of these votes were for a Democrat?

    Ballots are always “found” when the conservative is winning! Fraud!

    I’m sure there’s one or two cemeteries that were missed by the people collecting the absentee ballots!

    Interesting. A stash of ‘uncounted ballots’? No doubt all votes for Democrats, right? I wonder how many of such ‘stashes’ of possible fraudulent votes the Democrats have?

    When Dino Rossi WON the gubernatorial race in Washington State in 2004 the Democrats squealed like stuck pigs. They DEMANDED a recount. Then, suddenly a bunch of “lost votes” were “found.” ALL of them for Christine Gregoire, his Democratic opponent. But there weren’t enough extra votes to put her over the top. So, another recount was demanded, and more mysteriously “lost votes” were located. Still no joy, so the Democrats demanded one more recount. And—wouldn’t you know it—more “lost votes” were located. ALL of the “lost votes” were for Gregoire. NOT ONE SINGLE “LOST VOTE” WAS FOUND FOR ROSSI…?!?!? And Gregoire finally “won.” That’s it…no more recounts….

    I read this story and have Déjà vu all over again. The Democrats CAN’T win an honest election. That is why they oppose voter ID, any investigation into voter fraud, and support open borders (to import voters).

      The Left Wing Anarchist are registering to vote in 2 states in some parts of Texas.
      They register to vote in their home town, travel to Texas
      ( All Paid for by George Soros groups) stay with their group of leftist in Texas, get an Electric Bill in their name,
      Then register to Vote in Texas also. Their expenses are paid by George Soros to travel to both places at Election Time.
      We have no way to Verify Voters in Both States.

    They are registering & voting in 2 states in parts of Texas.
    They register in their home state, travel to Texas, stay with the other groups of left wing anarchist, get an electric account in their name, then register to vote in Texas.
    George Soros is paying them to travel all over at election time, they stay with each other and we have no way to verify they are a registered voter in another state also.
    Dirt Bag Politics!

    This is corrupt. Given the close nature of this election, it is statistically impossible for someone to gain 190 votes when there are only 588 votes found.

    More DEMONcratic BS.

      And the other 398 must have been spoilt. If democrats pucked up 190 then the republican picked up 398, or do they want to maintain that in a near 50/50 race suddenly they found a group of 588 votes where the result is 66/33. Sorry statistics just do not work that way.

    They haven’t compiled all the votes from the cemeteries yet.
