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.
