Saccone Concedes to Lamb in Special Election

Republican Rick Saccone conceded the 18th Congressional district special election to Democrat Conor Lamb in a phone call Wednesday.

“This afternoon, I spoke to Mr. Lamb, conceding the race in the Pennsylvania 18th Congressional District and congratulating him on his victory,” Saccone said in a statement according to the Post-Gazette.

Lamb tweeted out that he had spoken to Saccone and was ready to get to work in Congress.


With the win, Democrats in the state and nationally will likely point to Lamb’s win as the start of a wave ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.  

Since the redraw of the state’s Congressional district the 18th district that the special election was held in no longer exists, Lamb filed to run in the new 17th district and Saccone filed to run in the new 14th district.

    good choice Rick is to concede and not run for a term for congress, even though I live in New Jersey maybe I will support you in a future US Senate run or a governor run in 2022 if Pat Toomey decides to retire or when potentially tom wolf is term limited if he does wins reelection this year though

    Lamb is what we need more of in BOTH parties.

      We don’t need any more phonies in both parties. There are plenty already. Lamb will vote just a a normal left winged Democrat.

  3. Isaac L. says:

    Lamb is a class act.

  4. GM says:

    God keeps telling Saccone to run for offices he never holds. Either Rick is schizophrenic, lying or God likes f***ing with him.

    1. Jim says:

      He only conceded because he didn’t want to be perceived as a sore loser as he was campaigning in his new congressional district.

        He doesn’t even live in the 14 district.

        1. Commonwealth says:

          Neither does his primary opponent.
