Was PA one of the places where the voting machines do not provide a "receipt"? Or was that just particular districts? (I'm having some kind of recollection, but I could be way off.) I ask because this is sure to be a recount situation. Just wondering about the logistics.

Lamb's election sure highlights the folly of the Purity Test. He's certainly a conservative democrat (although not even close to how the GOP are spinning this, that he's basically a Republican in Dem clothing), but a liberal D couldn't win in this district. He has to be IN the house to test how he will vote on any particular issue, and I'd rather take my chances on a conservative D than an uber-conservative R.

I hope the vote count holds up.
