LEWIS CENTER, Ohio -- President Donald Trump spoke in support of GOP congressional candidate Troy Balderson, at a campaign rally Saturday evening  in Ohio.

Balderson is running in Tuesday's special election against Democrat Danny O'Connor in Ohio's 12th Congressional District on Tuesday, in the final special election before November. The seat opened up when Republican Rep. Pat Tiberi resigned in January to lead the Ohio Business Roundtable.

The President spoke on Balderson's behalf, saying that Balderson will work to help him continue his work in Washington. He defiantly questioned the idea that historically, the party that controls the White House suffers in the midterms, declaring "but I say why?"

Currently, Balderson holds a slim leader over his opponent, O'Connor.

The President also spoke on his touring victories and addressed campaign promises, such as the border wall.

"We're building the wall, we're building the wall. Don't worry. We've already started," said President Trump.

He also discussed the economy saying, "We have the greatest economy we've ever had. We have the best numbers, we're setting records in every respect. So it's much easier for me to do this than it was when I was campaigning, when I said this will happen. This is a much easier situation."

President Trump ended his speech by urging people to vote Republican in November's midterm election,  arguing that Republicans need to control Congress by casting the midterms.
