Pennsylvania’s 18th District special election too close to call

Pennsylvania’s 18th District special election too close to call

The candidates competing for Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District House seat are neck and neck, leaving the race too close to call Tuesday night.

With all precincts reporting, Politico shows Democrat Conor Lamb receiving 49.8 percent of the vote with 113,111 ballots cast for him, versus Republican Rick Saccone pulling in 49.6 percent of the vote with 112,532 votes cast in his favor — a difference of 579 votes.

In the 2016 presidential election, 58 percent of the district voted for Donald Trump.

Polling from last month showed Saccone with an edge in the race over Lamb, with a low turnout model showing Saccone would win 50 percent to 45 percent.

As of Monday, the tides turned in the polling models, showing Saccone trailing Lamb by anywhere from two to seven points.
