Republican Rick Saccone Concedes Pennsylvania 18th Race to Democrat Conor Lamb

Democrat Conor Lamb announced Wednesday that his Republican opponent, Rick Saccone, has conceded in the close special election last week for Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District.

“Just got off the phone with my opponent, @RickSaccone4PA, who congratulated me & graciously conceded last Tuesday’s election,” Lamb tweeted Wednesday. “I congratulate Mr. Saccone for a close, hard-fought race & wish him the best. Ready to be sworn in & get to work for the people of #PA18.”

Former Saccone campaign spokesman Patrick McCann said he had spoken to Saccone’s team Tuesday. “The tweet is accurate,” he said.

Saccone trailed Lamb by around 700 votes in the latest count in the Pittsburgh-area race, which took place eight days ago.

A spokesperson for the National Republican Congressional Committee did not immediately return a request for comment.

      Second verse: “Soon we will impeach TRUMP, impeach TRUMP, impeach TRUMP!” (Everybody sing!) “Soon we will impeach Trump la la la la la”

        For what? There’s no ‘Russian collusion’, obstruction of justice, or money laundering. All there is is a BS investigation started by the Democrats and fully supported by their media cronies designed to try to remove a duly elected president, or at least to embarrass him and keep those false, negative stories in the press every day. The full-on attack since President Trump’s election has exposed the true nature of the lying losers that the Democrats and their media thugs are for all of the American people to see. You’ll be singing at the sky for the next 7 years.

        To Silverfish……There have been 19 indictments and 5 guilty pleadings for lying under oath. Draft Dodger Don is sweating.

        Yet not one of them have anything to do with President Trump or his campaign colluding with Russians to influence the election in his favor. If anything, it’s proving the Democrats were in cahoots with the Russians (and a British national) to fabricate evidence against our President. He’s not sweating – he’s laughing.
