The race to fill the empty U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania was full of twists and turns, right down to the last minute. The GOP primary was so close that networks could not call a winner.
Additionally, the margins between Dr. Mehmet Oz, a celebrity doctor, and David McCormick, a wealthy former hedge fund CEO, and U.S. Army Ranger, were so thin that many believe a statewide recount could be triggered, as any margin of 0.5% or lower would initiate that process.
Some operatives in the state, including Republican David Urban, are convinced that McCormick will not only pull ahead in the vote count in the coming days as mail-in ballots are tallied, but he also thinks McCormick will survive a statewide recall, Breitbart reported.
While Urban has worked in Pennsylvania Republican politics for over two decades, it should be noted that he also works for McCormick.
“I would say … when all of these ballots that were cast are counted, McCormick will be ahead, as we head into the recount, when they’re all counted,” the politico said during an interview with Breitbart.
He added: “Now, again, that’s going to be a couple days here, but they’ll be done this coming week is my suspicion.”
There are still thousands of ballots that were not able to be counted on election day due to a technical error with ballots and envelopes. Once again, Pennsylvania results have been delayed, and many have called out the state for being so poor at deciding elections, which only further stokes fears of fraudulent or otherwise shady activities.
Pennsylvania is clearly incapable of holding free, fair, and transparent elections.
The small amount of votes outstanding make fraud and deception the only reasons for the delay.
They’re doing all they can to cheat once again.

Only time will tell if Urban’s prediction comes true, but in the meantime, one can expect allegations to fly from the side that ends up losing, given how close the count will likely be.
