Pennsylvania Senate GOP primary still too close to call, statewide recall likely

The race to fill an open U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania turned into a contest for the ages, as two top Republican candidates went head-to-head last week, with a third opponent not far behind, resulting in a contest with razor-thin margins.

According to The Hill, while there are still mail-in ballots to count, the margin is so thin that it will more than likely trigger the state’s automatic recounting mechanisms, which happens if the margin of an election comes in under 0.5%.

The two Republican candidates fighting for the last few votes are Hollywood celebrity Dr. Mehmet Oz, and hedge-fund CEO David McCormick, who also served as a U.S. Army Ranger.

Assuming the margins stay in the same range as the final votes are counted, Pennsylvania’s counties will have until June 8 to recount and submit their final tallies to the state election board, with the result coming shortly after that deadline.

Dr. Oz ran with the endorsement of former President Donald Trump who, as of Pennsylvania’s race, had gone 58-1 in endorsements for primary candidates.

Many have suggested that because Trump’s endorsement is usually a guaranteed winning ticket, Dr. Oz, who has a history of taking Democratic views on hot-topic issues, isn’t the strong candidate Trump thought him to be in the first place, leaving an opening for McCormick.

A third candidate, Kathy Barnette, who rose to popularity in the final weeks of the PA race, came in third place, only falling about 10% behind the two leaders. Many had eyes on Barnette’s rise, and in the final days of the race, Fox News’s Sean Hannity and other establishment GOP media types ran several days worth of what amounted to attack ads against her, while endorsing Oz.

Only time will tell who the winner is, but no matter who that is, we need to pray that they’re strong enough to win in the general election later this year against a tough Democratic opponent.

After years of Democrat “leadership”, Pennsylvania is becoming the laughing stock of the nation. They have demonstrated, OVER AND OVER, they CANNOT RUN ELECTIONS (or a State)!
