Pence is coming to Ohio12 to campaign against DannyO'Connor.

That district is ruby red & gerrymandered, given that the special election is Tue AUGUST 7, Pence being there on Mon July 30, tells me the GOP is worried & trying to pump up awareness & get their voters out.

"The special election is being viewed by many as a barometer on Trump and a harbinger of November mid-term elections. It also emphasizes the importance of turnout in unusual late-summer election to determine a congressional seat in a district Trump carried by 11 points."

The two candidates are locked in a bitter race to replace Republican Pat Tiberi, who represented the district for 17 years before leaving Congress in January to take a position with the Ohio Business Roundtable. The district has been held by a Republican since 1982.
snip
Underscoring the stakes central Ohio's Aug. 7 special congressional election, Vice President Mike Pence will campaign Monday in Newark for Republican state Sen. Troy Balderson in his bid to represent the 12th district in Washington.
Pence announced his impending appearance in a tweet Friday, the same day new campaign finance filings from both candidates showed Democrat Danny O'Connor outpacing Balderson.

3. He is scheduled to go to Hawaii

To be there when the Korean War soldiers are returned. I do wonder why the apricot hellbeast isn't going though.

4. Keep this in mind

Postcards to Voters has been working to reach EVERY registered Democrat in Ohio 12 to encourage them to vote for Danny O'Connor. It is one more way to support GOTV efforts.

Hope that Pence has low turnout for his appearances. He is just such a weasel.

5. The Pence rally area is a trumper haven. The local & state party will make sure there is a turn out

Early Dem turn out has been good.

8. Tiberi resigned in Jan 2018. He left his very very safe seat early.

Curiously so.
