    On Tuesday, Pennsylvania’s 18th district held a special election in which Democrat Conor Lamb is widely believed to have edged out his Republican rival Rick Saccone. While absentee votes are still being counted, Republicans are raising concerns that some voting machines were “miscalibrated,” which led to votes being switched from Saccone to Lamb.

    Serious shenanigans may have gone down in Pennsylvania's special election on Tuesday. From the Washington Free Beacon:Lamb currently leads Republican Rick Saccone by just 627 votes and there are still absentee and provisional ballots that have not been tabulated, but Republicans are already preparing for the likely recount and even a possible lawsuit regarding issues at polling sites, according to a Republican source familiar with the deliberations. "We're actively investigating three instances and likely to file court action on them," the source said. Among the listed concerns are "miscalibrated" voting machines in Allegheny County, the only county of four in...

    PITTSBURGH — Republicans will not be conceding anytime soon in a tightly contested special election in Pennsylvania, where Democrat Conor Lamb holds a slim lead over Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone in Tuesday's election. Lamb's campaign and Democratic groups have declared him the winner, as he sits with less than a 700-vote lead. NBC News also projected him the "apparent winner" early Wednesday morning as more absentee ballots trickled in. There are still about 203 absentee ballots and then additional provisional and military ballots left to be counted, but Saccone would have to capture an overwhelming majority of those outstanding...

    It could come down to a recount. Democrat Conor Lamb has already declared victory over Republican Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania’s special House election, but Republicans say they aren’t giving up until every vote is counted. The contest has still not been called, but Lamb leads Saccone by a few hundred votes. There’s no mandatory recount for a federal race in Pennsylvania, but Republicans have the option of petitioning for one. "This race is too close to call and we’re ready to ensure that every legal vote is counted,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Matt Gorman said late Tuesday. “Once they...
  • Vanity - NY Times has Saccone winning by 62% & then scraps prediction, suddenly....Election fraud?

    03/14/2018 2:49:46 PM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 23 replies
    Last evening I began watching the PA-18th-CD election returns on the New York Times newspaper election results site...which is by far the best in the business for election reporting and background information. As the initial election returns flowed in, the Times indicated that, though the race was very close, it appeared like Conon Lamb would eke out a victory scoring 52%-48% over Rick Saccone. Then about fifteen minutes later, the Times suddenly changed its prediction to Saccone winning by a 62%-38% over Lamb. The Times said that they had information as to voting patterns in the Conservative counties, indicating a...

    In the most astonishingly bone-headed move since nominating Mitt Romney for President, the GOP establishment spent major cash to help elect Democrat Conor Lamb in last night’s highly contested PA-18 special election. Yes, you read that right. Failed Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan and his Congressional Leadership Fund pushed a Democrat to victory over a Republican with direct mail advertising touting support “for our Second Amendment Rights.” I’ll repeat that again. A so-called GOP PAC led by Paul Ryan spent thousands of dollars in a direct mail campaign to convince voters that Conor Lamb was a conservative who would protect...
  • Vanity - What the assumed Conor Lamb Victory really means.

    03/14/2018 10:02:27 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 33 replies
    I posted something like this months back, but, I believe the supposed Democrat, "Conor Lamb" victory over Republican, "Rick Saccone" last evening is really proving my point made some months back. I stated, it was my belief that the current Democrat Party was in a self-destruct mode following a road leading down to failure and collapse as a meaningful political party. Last night you witnessed the birth of a new Democrat Party, a necessary survival fallback to the once "Blue Dog Democrats". The Democrat Party cannot and will not survive as a party of the far-left, progressive, socialist, anti-American Republic...

    Republicans are panicked after Democrat Conor Lamb closed in on a victory over Republican Rick Saccone in a Pennsylvania congressional district that went for President Donald Trump by 20 points in 2016. That Lamb could perform so well in a district that overwhelmingly supported Trump and had sent a Republican to Congress without much contention for the better part of two decades signaled major challenges for the party as it seeks to maintain its congressional majorities in this year's midterm elections. "It's really hard to see how anyone looks at the factors Republicans are facing at this time, and the...
  • The Note: In Pennsylvania’s special election, an expensive lesson for Republicans

    03/14/2018 5:15:12 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 35 replies
    More than $10 million, a visit by President Donald Trump, the mobilization of the GOP army … all to buy a tie? It’s not just any tie. Republicans fought to almost (but not quite) even in a district Trump carried by nearly 20 points in 2016, and where Democrats had stopped bothering to even field House candidates in recent cycles. Plus, the district won’t even exist this time next year. Whether Conor Lamb assumes a seat in Congress is almost secondary at this point. He already showed that that red can turn purple and purple can turn close to blue,...
  • Why It Doesn't Matter Who the Winner Is in PA-18

    03/14/2018 6:27:30 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 69 replies
    As of this writing, Democrat Conor Lamb is clinging to a lead of roughly 600 votes in the special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District. There are probably not enough uncounted votes out there for Republican Rick Saccone to pull out the win. It also really doesn’t matter much, one way or the other (unless you are a Democrat living in the 18th who feels strongly about having a Democrat represent you in Washington). Here’s why: The House is increasingly polarized. There was a time that a narrowed House majority for a party would make for interesting politics in Washington,...

    DEmocrats win by ANOTHER razor thin margin after sudden late- night counting gives them enough? I AM NOT BUYING IT! If Trump does not get a handle on election fraud then we are lost. The democrats know this is their last hope to get the obama agenda back on track. If Trump got a supermajority they would be set back 40 years. They are going to pull off all the voter fraud they can- and then some. Because they know if they win THERE WILL BE NO INVESTIGATIONS

    CANONSBURG, PA — Democrat Conor Lamb declared victory early Wednesday morning in his razor-tight bid for a Pittsburgh-area House special election, although the race hasn't yet been called. The seat, which voted for President Trump in 2016 by a 20-point margin, was once considered an easy win for Republicans. But Lamb currently leads Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone by 579 ballots, with some absentee ballots outstanding. "It took a little longer than we thought, but we did it. You did it," Lamb told supporters at his election night party shortly before 1 a.m., after he was introduced as "congressman-elect." "We...

    A thread to discuss the results. I feel like Lamb has a lot of momentum, has run as a moderate, and has run a better campaign. I'll predict he'll win tonight (although I'd like to see Saccone win). NYT does a good job with election results.

    updated 2 hours ago Conor Lamb will win Western Pennsylvania's special election race for Congress on Tuesday if there is a surge in Democratic turnout similar to what has been seen in other special elections over the past year, according to a Monmouth University poll out Monday. The Monmouth poll's “Democratic surge” model shows Lamb collecting 51 percent of the vote compared with Saccone's 45 percent, while 1 percent of likely voters would opt for a third-party candidate and 3 percent remain undecided. The poll's margin of error is 5.1 percent. Monmouth said Lamb holds a slim advantage within the...

    (CNN)The special election contest in southwest Pennsylvania will come to an end on Tuesday night and, though the winner remains in doubt, the post-election spin pretty much writes itself. A new Monmouth University poll out Monday afternoon shows Democrat Conor Lamb leading GOP candidate Rick "I was Trump before Trump was Trump" Saccone, but the margin is slight -- meaning political operatives and pundits are preparing for all eventualities. That includes the most powerful political pontificator in the land -- President Donald Trump. According to Axios, he is not-so-privately dumping on Saccone and his campaign, calling the Republican "weak." Meanwhile,...

    Folks in the Pennsylvania 18th House Congressional District will cast their votes tomorrow, Tuesday, March 13, 2018, in a special election between Democrat, Conor Lamb and Republican, Rick Saccone. Lamb is running as a supposed "moderate" Democrat, who claims he will not support Democrat House Minority Leader, Nancy Polesi if elected and Saccone is running as a "true" POTUS, Donald J. Trump supporter, as he actually is. If there is any person planning to cast their vote for Conor Lamb, kindly take into consideration that if you elect Conor Lamb, on the day of his election, Mr. Lamb will immediately...
