15th Congressional District Seat Too Close To Call; GOP Holds on To Other Congressional Seats

Listen to the Story

Voters in Ohio’s 15th Congressional District will have to wait for final results where initial results show Republican Steve Stivers leading Democrat Mary Jo Kilroy by a fraction of a point.

Unlike the quick results of the presidential race, the battle for the 15th Congressional District seat was not as easily determined. The Ohio Secretary of State website shows Democrat Mary Jo Kilroy and Republican Steve Stivers neck and neck. Franklin County Commissioner Kilroy hopes to replace retiring Congresswoman Deborah Pryce. Kilroy narrowly lost to Pryce two years ago after a recount. Neither Kilroy nor Stivers addressed their supporters citing the closeness of the race.

Republicans did hold on to the 12th District as incumbent Pat Tiberi fought off a challenge from Democrat David Robinson. The GOP also won in the 7th District where Steve Austria defeated Sharen Neuhardt.
