Democrat Jo Taek-sang leads UFP nominee Bae Jun-yeong 44.8% to 38.6%. In 2016, Bae lost to a conservative independent by 1 point.
Democrat Lee So-yeongleads UFP nominee Sin Gyeo-yong 39.4% to 32.5% in Uiwang city’s district, which is located south of Seoul and north of Suwon. The Democrats won the seat in 2016, but Lee is new to the seat.
