Congressman Troy Balderson won a full term to the House of Representatives Tuesday night.

At 11pm Tuesday night, Balderson had 51% of the vote to democrat Danny O'Connor's 47%.

The Zainesville republican won a special election in August after Representative Pat Tiberi resigned from the position.

In the August special election, Balderson beat O'Connor with less than 1,700 votes.

In a victory speech at the Doubletree Hotel in Newark, Balderson said he wants to focus on the economy and creating jobs.
