50. Victoria Wulsin came within 1.3% of beating her in 2006

2006
Main article: Ohio 2nd congressional district election, 2006
Schmidt faced Democrat Victoria Wells Wulsin, a doctor from Indian Hill in the November general election.
During Schmidt's re-election bid there were several controversies, which affected her campaign. One was a March 2006 report about Schmidt's past claims that she had a B.A. in secondary education from the University of Cincinnati, awarded in 1986. Schmidt's defenders pointed out that neither her current official or campaign website had the second degree posted, and said that Schmidt had completed the requirements for the degree but never filed the paperwork to be awarded a diploma. On April 27, five days before the May 2 primary, the Ohio Elections Commission voted 7-0 to issue Schmidt a public reprimand for "false statements" for her claiming to have that second degree. The Commission also found that Schmidt had made false claims of being endorsed by several organizations, but that these did not warrant any reprimand.
Schmidt won the Republican primary defeating former U.S. Congressman Bob McEwen 48%-43%.
She defeated Wulsin 51%-49%, a difference of 2,865 votes, and a margin of 1.3%. This was the closest a Republican had come to losing the seat in 42 years. Schmidt held her seat by winning her home base in Clermont County by almost 8,000 votes
