Trump will be the GOP’s undoing. His overt racism is as sickening as it has been for those of us having to deal with racists for a lifetime. He pretends to be a Republican, even though he’s a lifelong slick NYC Democrat, because he knows the GOP is run over with racists like him, and Democrats would never embrace him anymore.  Democrat Conor Lamb declared victory early Wednesday in Pennsylvania’s special House election that was officially too close to call but seen by some political observers as a clear message to Republicans prior to November’s midterm elections.conor-lamb-joe-biden-ap-jef-180306_4x3_992

The most recent results — with 99 percent of the precincts reporting — show Lamb up by fewer than 900 votes over Republican Rick Saccone. State officials said there were about 3,900 absentee ballots that still needed to be counted.

 

The final result may be determined by a recount.

Still, the unofficial results showed Lamb riding a wave of Democratic enthusiasm in a district that President Donald Trump won 16 months ago by 20 points. The result was expected to raise Democratic hopes of taking back the House in November.

 

“It took a little longer than we thought,” Lamb, a former Marine, told supporters. “We followed what I learned in the Marines – leave no one behind. We went everywhere; we talked to everyone; we invited everyone in.”
