Another 'flip flop' in Congress? 2018 midterms give Democrats hope (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 2/8/2018)
In Ohio’s 1st district in southwestern Ohio, longtime Republican U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot drew a challenge in late January from Hamilton County Clerk of Courts Aftab Pureval – who had been courted by Democrats after beating another entrenched Republican for his current job. Chabot served 14 years in Congress before getting knocked out of office in a Democratic wave in 2008, then regained the seat two years later. Trump won the district in 2016 by a 6-point margin.
Trump received 51.2% of the vote in 2016 compared to 52.4 for Romney in 2012 and 51.8% for McCain in 2008.
Clinton received 44.6% of the vote in 2016 compared to 46.3% for Obama in 2012 and 47.2% for Obama in 2008.
