We will soon find out whether the winner in the closely-contested special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District is Republican Rick Saccone or Democrat Conor Lamb.
I’ll be watching Fox News. What coverage are you watching? Or are you skipping it altogether?

“The GOP trumpeting their tax scam was supposed to be their slam-dunk election 2018 election strategy. It went down in flames as Lamb took it head on pointing out its inequity. 🤑”
Dear EOF: That’s probably because Lamb kept pointing out Universal Tax Rule #1 from the Pulitzer Prize winning journalists Donald Barlett & James Steele (authors of the national bestsellers “America: What Went Wrong?” and “America: Who Really Pays The Taxes?”) and David Cay Johnston (author of the national bestsellers “Free Lunch” and “Perfectly Legal”): no matter how you slice it, when rich individuals and big multinational corporations don’t pay taxes or pay less than their fair share, WORKING CLASS AMERICANS (including me) ALWAYS GET STUCK MAKING UP THE DIFFERENCE IN THE END!
Demented Donnie will say that Saccone would have won if he had more fervently embraced Trumpism.
Regardless, there are 2 huge wins in this race for the Democrats:
1. Trump is proven toxic to the GOP brand. 🤡
2. The GOP trumpeting their tax scam was supposed to be their slam-dunk election 2018 election strategy. It went down in flames as Lamb took it head on pointing out its inequity. 🤑
Gaining a temporary seat for 8 months as this district gets de-gerrymandered is just the gravy!
Guess the old saying is true after all.
March does come in like a lion and goes out like a Lamb.
Sorry. Couldn’t resist.
So, yes, it’s too close to call but I’d rather be Lamb than Saccone at this point.
Fox merely says, “Lamb declares himself winner” and race “too close to call.”
Still cautiously optimistic. Saccone will have to outperform his precinct performance with his absentee ballot performance to win according to CNN. Like 62-63% in his favor. His precinct performance sub-60% with (I think) 3 precincts in Westmoreland not reporting for whatever reason. I hope the 3 unreported precincts aren’t corrupt GOPers waiting to know how many ballots to stuff into the box for the win.
CNN has Lamb up by 847 with Allegheny County – Lamb country – done. By done I mean 100% in + absentee ballots 100% counted. Meanwhile, Westmoreland County and Washington County – Saccone country – won’t count their absentee ballots until tomorrow morning.
Even Rick Santorum on CNN is giving the edge to Lamb. Say your prayers before you go to bed! 😇
Laughing at a Trump sycophant on CNN spin this as a win for Trump. His logic is Trump showed up and a 5% point poll lead for Lamb has narrowed to this nail biter. Any argument Trump got them into this mess in the 1st place he ignores. Not to mention right-wingers throw poo at polls until it makes their case. 🤣
