State officials have officially called Pennsylvania's special Congressional election for Conor Lamb.
Lamb, a moderate Democrat, has delivered a stunning upset in a typically Republican district. In election 2016, Donald Trump won the contested district by a margin of 20 percentage points over Sec. Hillary Clinton.
In a stunning upset, Democrat Conor Lamb won an incredibly close special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District, beating out Republican candidate Rick Saccone in a deeply conservative district the nonpartisan Cook Political Report rated R+11. The race stretched into Wednesday midday, when CNN reported Lamb was in the lead with 627 votes, with 100 percent of precincts reporting. State law does not mandate a recount in district-level elections.
