District 1Edit

The incumbent is Republican Steve Chabot, who has represented the district since 2011. Chabot was re-elected with 59% of the vote in 2016. However, the district is considered more competitive for this election than in previous iterations. The Democratic challenger, Aftab Pureval, has outpaced his predecessors in fundraising, and political ratings publishers Sabato's Crystal Ball and The Cook Political Report have changed their ratings for the district to "Toss-Up" and "Leans Republican", respectively.[2][3]
