Tsuneo Horiuchi (堀内 恒夫 Horiuchi Tsuneo?, born January 16, 1948 in Kōfu, Yamanashi) is a former professional baseball pitcher in Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball and politician. In 2008 he was voted into the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame.[1]

Politics[edit]

He stood as a candidate of the House of Councillors election, 2010 for the LDP[2] but lost. Receiving 101,840 preference votes nationwide, he ranked 13th on the LDP list[3] – the party received only twelve proportional seats – and was thus the top replacement candidate for a possible kuriage-tōsen, i.e. the first candidate to be elected without additional vote if an LDP proportional seat in the 2010 class of Councillors falls vacant.

He became a member of the House of Councillors in the proportional representation segment of the class of 2010 in August 2013 as replacement for Hirohiko Nakamura who died on July 31, 2013.
