Democrat Lamb's Slim Lead Grows in Pennsylvania House Bid

Wednesday, 14 March 2018 08:29 AM

Democrat Conor Lamb's slim lead over Republican Rick Saccone has grown in their closely watched special election for Congress in Pennsylvania.

Unofficial results Wednesday morning showed Lamb's lead at 641 votes — out of more than 224,000 votes cast. Election officials say there are about 200 absentee votes and an unknown number of provisional ballots still to be counted.

The four counties in the western Pennsylvania district have seven days to count provisional ballots.

Either candidate's supporters can ask for a recount but there are stiff requirements.

Lamb's lead grew by 62 votes on Wednesday morning when Washington County finished counting absentee ballots.

The contest has drawn national attention as a bellwether for the midterm elections in November when the Republican Party's House and Senate majorities are at risk.
