The election was held a week ago tomorrow, but the contentious House special election doesn’t have an official winner yet. Democrat Conor Lamb has a lead of around 600 votes over Republican Rick Saccone, and Lamb has declared victory, but there are still some votes needed to be counted.
Pennsylvania’s contentious House special election still doesn’t have an official winner nearly a week later.
Democrat Conor Lamb, who has a lead of roughly 600 votes over Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone, has declared victory in the race for the Pittsburgh-area seat. A Democratic win in the district would represent an embarrassment for Republicans in what should be a safe GOP seat — Trump carried it by 20 points in 2016.
But while some news outlets have declared Lamb the winner, neither the state nor The Associated Press has called the race.
