Democrat Conor Lamb is the apparent winner of a House seat in Pennsylvania’s Trump country by a razor-thin margin, an upset that gives Democrats a boost as they try to take control of Congress later this year.
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.
