The Republican Party of Pennsylvania is asking for an investigation into Tuesday’s special election. The state GOP has asked the Pennsylvania secretary of state to look into “a number of irregularities” it says occurred during voting in the House race. Republican Rick Saccone and Democrat Conor Lamb went toe to toe and the margin of victory was razor thin.
Lamb has claimed victory in the race over Saccone and holds a narrow lead of fewer than 700 votes. CNN has yet to project a winner in the race.
The Pennsylvania Republicans wrote a letter from general counsel Joel Frank that said there had been complaints of voting machines not being calibrated, voters not appearing on voter rolls, questions over website information on polling places, and notice of overseas and military voting.
Frank addressed a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice with a request for an appointment of federal observers “to monitor” the May 15 primary “for practices that may infringe on the ability of all duly qualified Pennsylvania voters to cast their votes in accordance with the voting protections afforded under federal laws.”
Do you think this is going to sway the outcome?
