too-close-to-call state rep race
According to unofficial totals, Landis led O’Farrell 22,622 to 22,365 — or 258 votes. An additional 1,823 provisional ballots remain to be counted by the Tuscarawas County Board of Elections.
The other undecided race is between state Rep. Mike Dovilla, R-Berea, and Democrat Matt Patten.
Ohio Democrats say that if Republicans win both races, the GOP will have a supermajority of 60 seats in the House.
“If Gov. John Kasich has a supermajority, he can more or less put anything on the ballot,” said Jerid Kurtz, spokesman for the Ohio Democratic Party.
