US: Close-fought Ohio race fuels Democratic hopes

Will Danny O'Connor (D) beat Troy Balderson (R) to Ohio congressional seat?

    In the US state of Ohio, Democrats are snapping at the heels of their Republican rivals in a special election for the House of Representatives.

    It's usually a safe Republican seat but the party's candidate only has a small lead; absentee and provisional ballots are not counted yet.
