At around 5:30 a.m. ET, NBC News reported that it appeared that Lamb had won. The only outstanding votes are the approximately 200 absentee votes in Greene County, it said, and the provisional ballots that the district will count within the next seven days. Even with those added to the count, it does not appear that rival Rick Saccone can catch up. NBC News noted it was possible that there may be a recount ordered.
Lamb, a 33-year-old former prosecutor and Marine veteran, was expected to narrowly beat Republican Rick Saccone in Tuesday’s 18th District special election. Pro-GOP groups poured money into the race to avoid a loss that may shake up November’s battle for control of Congress.
Early Wednesday, Lamb declared victory, but the Saccone campaign said it did not plan to concede yet.
As Joe Biden would say – this is a big f*cking deal.
