It could come down to a recount.
Democrat Conor Lamb has already declared victory over Republican Rick Saccone in Pennsylvanias special House election, but Republicans say they arent giving up until every vote is counted.
The contest has still not been called, but Lamb leads Saccone by a few hundred votes. Theres 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 were ready to ensure that every legal vote is counted, National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Matt Gorman said late Tuesday. Once they are, were confident Rick Saccone will be the newest Republican member of Congress."

Count the absentee ballots first, then see what the margins are.
I went to bed last night reading it was 52 / 47 in favor of the Rat. What happened?
Conor claiming “victory” is a typical shady Demorat ploy.
Absentees and military ballots have yet to be counted.
Remember, we’ve “maybe” lost only one US congressional seat so far (in PA), and one US Senate seat in Ala.
The rest of the Democrat wins are state houses ..... lower house seats.
The magic Halfrican, Obama, managed to lose over 1000 of those seats in 8 years, about over 110 seats lost per year. (hat tip SmokingJoe)
In all, Obama’s tenure caused major damage to Democrats all over the nation and in the Congress where he reduced them to a minority.
Many RATs are very sad about this.
I kind of understand that when you have your cheat sheet all written out, you plan to win no matter the cost. Yeah baby.
It is so irritating to cheat and barely win or lose. Sigh baby.
Back to the drawing board! /sarc
Hoping for a recount. It’s my district. I won’t say anything more about this until more details come out.
Win or lose, this would be a good chance for the Republicans to dig through every vote and expose the fraud. They have time on their hands since this election doesn’t change anything.
Perfect opportunity for them but they will probably cave and run.
Interesting that a Democrat is potentially going to win having run as a Republican.
We have RINO’s that are Democrats that ran and won as a Republican.
1.Democrat base is extremely energized.
Fact is, HATE, is a great motivator. The Deep State/Hillary/DNC/Obama have ginned up extreme hate of Trump.
2.Democrats are running faux conservative ‘blue dog democrats’ in order to win.
Once they win they will naturally do what Pelosi and the neo-marxists demand, be and vote leftist while continuing to speak to constituents as a blue dog.
3.History reveals party that is in the WH loses in mid-terms.
If the neo-marxist party aka Democrat, win the House or the Senate the President will be Impeached by the House or Senate committees will determine Trump is a “russian spy”.
This district may not even exist in Nov.
Yes, the 2007 playbook! After they won back the House, those ‘conservative’ Democrats all voted lockstep with Pelosi.
History isn’t destiny.
The Dems got the Recount Routine down to a shady science.
The keep counting until they get enough votes to win.
It took the USSC to stop the crooked count in Fla for Gore.
Recounts always seem to find more votes for the Dem.....

Exactly. As I have said before, "Lamb is a wolf in sheep's clothing."
Ironically, the Democrats on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court just eliminated the 18th district in their recent redistricting ruling on the assumption the Republican would win. So Lamb has two bad choices for November, he can either run against the Republican in the neighboring western district, which will be much more Republican because of the redistricting or he can run against the Democrat in the neighboring eastern district, which was made much more democrat by the redistricting. The problem is, he is probably too moderate to win the Republican district and too socially conservative to win the democrat one
The GOP will loose seats this November. I don’t expect McConnell the RINO to put up a good fight. GOP always found it easier to be the Washington Generals and not the Harlem Globetrotters.
Enough to lose the majority? Maybe not but it will be razor thin.
From now until then to change the tie something big has to happen to change the narrative. The IG report may do that, may. Only IF the report reveals massive intelligence abuse, illegal un-masking,collusion between the Deep State, Obama WH,Hillary and the DNC.
“I went to bed last night reading it was 52 / 47 in favor of the Rat. What happened?”
The more rural precincts came in. Before I went to bed it was 50/50 and separated by 600 or so votes in Lamb’s favor. Once the absentee ballots are counted it might be even closer. Some illegal ballots were cast as well, I’m sure, but they can’t do much about that now.
