Voters from around the state and around the nation were keeping a close eye on Tuesday’s special election for the 12th Congressional District seat in central Ohio -- not only to see who would replace longtime Congressman Pat Tiberi, who resigned in January, but to gauge where voters fall in the current political climate. So what do Tuesday’s results mean for the upcoming November election? It depends on who you ask.

A special election next month in a Republican leaning Central Ohio congressional district is being closely watched. It’s the 12thdistrict – a seat formerly held by Pat Tiberi (TEA-berry)….and before that by Gov. John Kasich. The district has been solidly red for 40 years now. But there are signs the Democrat running to replace Tiberi in the special August election has a good shot of winning. Some are even saying this race captures the pulse of Ohio voters this November.

Republican Pat Tiberi has been a U.S. Representative for the 12th district in central Ohio since 2001 and in those nine terms, he has carried a lot of political clout in Washington D.C.  But what will his departure mean for his constituents and for Ohio?
