It'd be a really bad sign for Republicans if this was just polling as a tie.

The best part about PA-18 is how unimportant it is in the grand scheme of things. The district will not exist come November, and Conor's new district is much more equal. Also, Conor winning does not magically stop House Republicans from passing what they want.  That still hasn't stopped outside Republican groups from dropping serious cash on this race.

It makes even less sense considering how the 18th district will be located come November.

So wasn't their an election tonight to see who hated God more and got to be a congressman for 3 months or something?

Lamb is up by about 1200 votes with 4-5% of precincts left. It could go either way, but overall good night for Dems even if Lamb does not pull through. To be this close in a district that Trump won by +20 and Romney +17 has to make a lot of Republicans sick to their stomach.

The large scale picture has to scare the **** out of Republicans.

I think this race makes it especially hard to swallow because it is suppose to be "Trump Country". This district is full of working class voters and is 95.8% white.
