    I can't wait for the "CRITICIZING GENERALS MEANS YOU HATE AMERICA" crowd to tell us what complete pieces of garbage McMasters and Kelly are after Trump fires them.

    Polls just closed in the PA district that is deep red, won't exist anymore in eight months and in which Republicans outspent Democrats 13 to 1.

    The GOP is doing their best to set expectations as low as possible in PA-18 but that might just be so that they can really push it as being an upset if Saccone wins. If that happens, you can look forward to weeks of breathless articles about how the wave isn't materializing and how Democrats totally shouldn't bother in November.

    Things looking good right now for Lamb. Trump flaks on CNN already saying Saccone did not truly buy into the Trump agenda.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Welp, predictions are now safely in Saccone's corner again.

    You can ignore the needle; Westmoreland won't be providing results by precinct, which is what it needs to work.

    2017-Rex Tillerson calls Trump a fucking moron and nothing happens.

    2018- Rex Tillerson spoke out against Russia and was fired the next day.

    Republicans at the White House are pleased tonight with the narrow margin of PA-18. "This isn’t a blowout — for now, we’ll happily take it,” GOP official says.
    This is... not great spin for a district that swung 20 points.

    (There's 114 GOP districts where the margin is less than 20 points)

    Lamb also won Moon Township which is where Il Douche personally campaigned for Saccone.

    Looks like it's going to come down to absentee ballots so we probably won't know for days.

    The absentee ballots (which tend to lean Dem) will conveniently be counted at a later date. Gives them the night to throw them into the river.

    It'll be interesting to see how many more retirements we see because of this; even if Saccone does pull it out, that's a really bad result for a heavily Republican district where the GOP not only massively outspent the Democrat by about ten million dollars but had their sitting President personally come in on the candidate's behalf.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Huh, I just had the weirdest feeling of deja vu.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Two of the counties will do their absentee ballots tonight. The other two will wait until the morning so they know how many they need to make up.

    Lamb is leading with 847 votes with all votes counted + the absentee ballots in the Dem county, so the three GOP counties know which number they need to make up for tomorrow to win.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Washington County has been shamed into counting absentee ballots tonight.

    However, it's likely Lamb has won.

    Apparently the delay for Washington County was because they said those counties would have to ship the absentee votes back to the precinct and then back to the election headquarters to be counted. I guess that doesn't have to happen after all.

    Any stops by a local dump/incinerator would, of course, be purely coincidental.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Also these are all touch-screen voting machines. Any potential recount would basically be of the absentee ballots and checking to make sure somebody didn't input a number wrong.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Westmoreland County has finally completely reported in, absentee ballots and all, and Lamb remains up by over five hundred votes. Saccone would have to outdo his election day performance in the remaining absentee ballots by almost twenty points to win.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    This is the kind of precinct map that should terrify Republicans.



    This was a district Trump won by 20%.

    If this sort of result from that sort of margin holds steady in November this is what would happened to the House.

    That would be well above 2/3 veto proof majority. Would be nice. Can't quite get that margin in the senate though.

    Damnit, New York, you're so close to getting this right.

    Also, what's really beautiful about this is that the GOP used its entire playbook here.

    Tons and tons of outside cash? Check.
    Invoking the Dread Demon Pelosi? Check.
    Playing up the (not really a) Tax Cut? Check.
    Sending in the NRA for a "They's gonna take yer guns!" mailings campaign? Check.
    Sending in Commander Dumbass to froth at the mouth in person? Check.

    All of that and there was still a twenty point swing towards Democrats.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    There's probably at least one person at GOP HQ right now who's like the ConSec psychic in Scanners is my point.

    Spoiler:


    Obviously that's not happening due to a variety of reasons, but even a ten point swing should, I believe, be enough for a dramatic blue wave.
