A special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District made national news Tuesday when Democrat Conor Lamb topped Republican Rick Saccone by 627 votes in a district that in 2016 went for President Donald Trump by 20 points. A recount is not automatic in non-statewide races, even when just 0.27 percent separates the top two candidates. A third candidate, Libertarian Drew Miller, received less than 1 percent of the vote, more than twice the margin of victory. Last Friday, a panel of federal judges heard arguments in an appeal of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s newly drawn Congressional Districts. Lawyers for Republican lawmakers argued that the court was legislating from the bench. Also last Friday, Rep. Tarah Toohil (R-Luzerne) requested a restraining order against another GOP Caucus member, Rep. Nick Miccarelli (R- Delaware), who denies her allegations. Meanwhile, the state House passed a bill that would reduce the size of the House by 53 seats and the Senate by 12 seats, making Pennsylvania General Assembly about 25 percent smaller.
