National Polling Organization Calls Local Congressional Race A Toss Up

The race to fill the seat of the retiried central Ohio Republican congressman Pat Tiberi is too close to call, according to a national polling organization.  

The race was moved yesterday from "Leans Republican" to "Toss Up" by the University of Virginia's Center for Politics. A special election will be held on August 7th to fill Tiberi's unexpired term.  Republican Troy Balderson faces Democrat Danny O'Connor.  Tiberi resigned this past January. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
