    If Schumer wins again, should Trump get credit?

    99% in:

    lamb 49.9% 111,875

    saccone 49.5% 111,028

    Looks like a recount. Lamb ahead about 850.

    Apparently mandatory recount only for state wide voting. They would have to request one here since it is only one district.

    Lamb was ahead by 700 at 99% and sudddenly lead started decreasing. Russia did something to counting computers? Did they have latest anti-virus installed?

    As one reporter reminds us, there's no automatic recount provision for non-statewide Pennsylvania elections - candidates must request a recount, an outcome that is looking increasingly likely.

    3 days ago - “I really feel strongly about Rick Saccone,” he said. He praised Saccone as “a very fine human being,” and then got to the point: “We need Republicans.

    Libertarian candidate getting blamed: http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign...man-in-america

    Pa. third-party candidate: I'll soon be 'most hated man in America'

    The Libertarian candidate in the special congressional election in Pennsylvania joked that he expected to be “the most hated man in America” as the votes he earned contributed to the race being too close to call late Tuesday night.

    “We’re only a few hours away from me being the most hated man in America,” Drew Gray Miller tweeted.

    With 99 percent of precincts reporting in Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District as of roughly 11:30 p.m. EST, the margin between Democrat Conor Lamb and Republican Rick Saccone was just 847 votes.

    Meanwhile, Miller had accrued 1,351 votes,
    according to The New York Times.

    The Associated Press ruled shortly before 11:30 p.m. that it would not declare a winner on Tuesday night because the race was too close to call.

    The race will be determined early Wednesday morning after absentee ballots in Washington County, Pa., are counted.

    Miller told ABC News that the close race was "exactly the outcome" he wanted, because it would send a message that every vote matters.

    Its not a recount, they haven't finished counting, the vote is not complete and today is not a result, only a snapshot of the current vote total.

    They will count absentee ballots tomorrow (which is funny because aren't absentees supposed to be counted before)?

    $#@!ing GOP is going to get blown out of the water in the fall.

    And with good reason, they have a frothing, infuriated, rabid opposition just dying to vote against them, while at the same time they $#@! their base and stab knives in their back.

    That said, Trump is poison to "downballot" races, just like Obama was before him and Bush before him.

    A hated, controversial president does absolutely nothing but inflame and invigorate the opposition by campaigning locally.

    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Oh come on, now - that's not true. Have you seen the fundraising numbers!!

    I've always said that nothing increases the fundraising of both political parties like a fearful figure in charge and an opposition just within striking distance.

    There are some remaining votes to be counted, however, including provisional and any military or overseas ballots, which may currently still be in the mail but must be received by the counties by March 20.
    Republicans have not ruled out the possibility of a recount, which isn't mandatory for the district but could be requested by precinct with petitions from voters in the next few days.

    Bob Branstetter, a top adviser to Saccone's campaign, told CNN Wednesday morning that the campaign has not discussed a potential recount. But, he said, they are waiting for all votes to be counted before reaching a decision on conceding.
    Matt Gorman, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, said the party is not ruling out the possibility of a recount, and a source familiar with the process told CNN Wednesday morning that the GOP is likely to seek legal action over several areas in this race.
    The party is going to request that all ballots and voting machines are impounded so nothing is tampered with to allow for a likely recount, the source said. They allege reports of "miscalibrations" of several voting machines in Allegheny County, including frozen touchscreens where voters intending to cast their ballot for Saccone were only presented with Lamb. The party also accuses the Allegheny County election board of not letting Republican officials into the room where absentee ballots were being counted.
    The party also said that the Pennsylvania's secretary of state website confused voters by noting new district lines set to take effect in November following the state Supreme Court's order to redraw districts, the source added. Branstetter also said that the campaign received some calls from voters who were confused about whether they could still vote in the 18th District after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court's decision.

    Even if you believe what people say when they are campaigning. That still wouldn't mean he is going to support Trump's agenda. Heck Trump ran as a pro gun candidate and now he supports the anti gun laws sweeping the country. People not just politicians lie when they are trying to court you and this is why people should never believe campaign promises especially when they don't align with the person's history.

    Pro tariff you say? Bernie Sander and many democrats are also pro tariff today and anti Pelosi just what democrats in Red states say when they are running, it is standard operating procedure.

John Bolton endorsed Saccone. If Saccone did not discuss his foreign policy beliefs, many might wonder what is he hiding, especially if he gave no indication of his beliefs after Bolton endorsed him.

    On the other hand, Libertarian Drew Gray Miller clearly called for an end to foreign aid and foreign wars, closure of overseas military bases and bringing all troops home.

    On a day when Trump throws out the only somewhat moderate in his cabinet, Rex Tillerson, nominates the bloodthirsty Iran-hating Pompeo as the head of the State Dpt., and nominates a woman who actually engaged in torture of detainees as the head of the CIA, my gut tells me a lot of people on the fence regarding Trump's policies either stayed home, voted Democrat to spite Trump's newest cabinet nominations, or voted Libertarian.

    So the moral of the story could be that people were trying to tell Trump they have had enough of this militarism and endless war. The moral of the story could be that if Republicans want to win, they need to embrace the Libertarian faction of their party and embrace a noninterventionist foreign policy.

    I doubt that Trump has the humility to consider this, but I think on a day he nominated the worst of interventionists to cabinet positions, many of the heretofore Trump electorate in PA's congressional district 18 may have been totally repulsed by these nominations and may have voted accordingly.
