(Worthy News) - President Trump declared victory in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District on Tuesday night, as Republicans he endorsed won their primaries and possibly a critical special election.

The National Republican Congressional Committee claimed a win in Ohio’s 12th, too. "Congratulations to Congressman-Elect [Troy] Balderson on his hard-fought victory tonight,” said NRCC chairman Steve Stivers in a statement. “Nancy Pelosi and her liberal donors flooded this district with money and ads in an attempt to buy this seat. However, Troy's focus never wavered from the issues central Ohioans care about like fighting opioids, creating jobs, and lowering taxes.”

So did the Republican National Committee. "Today, the voters of Ohio’s 12th District elected a true conservative committed to pro-growth policies that have already brought new jobs and economic confidence to the state under President Trump’s leadership,” said RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. “Voters are tired of Democrats’ message of resist and obstruct, and [Democratic nominee] Danny O’Connor’s empty campaign rhetoric was no exception. With President Trump’s support that helped lead him to victory, Troy Balderson's win tonight is another example of the so-called 'blue wave' being nothing but a ripple."
