It Ain’t Over
Pa Republicans are going to dig in in Chester County’s 156th district.
“It’s not over till it’s over, and it’s not over,” insisted Steve Miskin, an aide to the current House majority leader, Rep. Sam Smith, R-Punxsutawney.
Despite claims Tuesday by House Democratic leader H. William DeWeese that Democrats would control the House by a 102-101 margin in 2007-08, Mr. Miskin said, “It’s premature right now to say it’s totally over.”
The Democratic candidate in the 156th House District race, Barbara McIlwaine Smith, leads her Republican opponent, Shannon Royer, by 23 votes, according to Chester County officials.
The 11 provisional votes won’t affect the outcome, but the ChescoGOP has five days to request another recount.
