In the special election to fill the Ohio 5 House seat, the Republican candidate won with 57 percent of the vote. That's in a district where President Bush got 61 percent of the vote in 2004. This suggests that the anti-Republican tide that swept Ohio in 2006 isn't abating. On the other hand, in the Virginia 1 seat, the Republican candidate won with 59 percent of the vote in a district President Bush won with 60 percent of the vote.
