“Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade on Wednesday suggested Democrat Conor Lamb won the Pennsylvania special election because he’s “cuter,” adding “cuteness counts.”
Responding to what made Lamb popular and therefore competitive in the very red congressional district, co-host Steve Doocy said Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume had called Lamb “cute.”
“I go to Brit Hume to find out what policies matter, and sometimes, who’s the cuter one,” Kilmeade said.
“Absolutely. Cuteness counts.”
The Hill added:
The Pennsylvania election was too close to call Wednesday morning, with Lamb leading by 641 votes but with more than 1,000 absentee votes still to be counted.
Lamb’s chances of an upset win over Republican Rick Saccone were promising, and the Democrat declared victory early Wednesday morning.
“It took a little longer than we thought, but we did it. You did it,” Lamb told his supporters on election night.
