Democrat Conor Lamb Declares Victory In Pennsylvania House Race; Saccone Does Not Concede





Democrat Conor Lamb has declared himself the winner in the Pittsburgh-area House special election as he holds a razor-thin 579 vote lead over Republican Rick Saccone, although some absentee ballots remain outstanding.

“It took a little longer than we thought, but we did it. You did it,” Lamb, 33, told supporters at his election night party shortly before 1 a.m.

“We followed what I learned in the Marines — leave no one behind. We went everywhere, we talked to everyone, we invited everyone in,” he said.



No major media outlets have not yet called the race, but Lamb’s campaign believes that Republican Rick Saccone does not have a path to victory in those remaining ballots.

As the Daily Beast notes: “The race was so close that the Associated Press chose not to declare a winner on Tuesday night. And considering the likelihood of provisional ballots and further legal challenges, an outcome may not be known until Friday.”
