Saccone is upset - again - in congressional contest, this time by Reschenthaler

Source: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It happened again.

Two months removed from his high-profile loss in a special election for Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District, state Rep. Rick Saccone of Elizabeth Township suffered another defeat in the Republican primary for the 14th at the hands of state Sen. Guy Reschenthaler.

Though Mr. Saccone had jokingly declared himself the unanimous winner early in the evening, Mr. Reschenthaler, 35, of Jefferson Hills, ended the night with two key counties in the bag and a call from Mr. Saccone just before 10:30 p.m., conceding the race.

“We have all won tonight,” Mr. Reschenthaler said. “I know everybody in this room really took what I would describe as the path least traveled. We were an absolute longshot when this race started.”

1. I literally just saw this at the below link

http://www.pennlive.com/news/2018/05/pa_primary_2018_live_results_f.html

And specifically with the pull down for the 14th on the interactive map at that link.



As a note, I saw that Conor Lamb ran unopposed in the primary for PA-17 so am hoping he will get it in November!

3. 14th CD will now pit

Reschenthaler, who doesn't live in the district, against Boerio, the D, who does. We'll see if that makes any difference to voters.
