Pat Toomey has finally pulled ahead of Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania. His lead is only 33,000 votes with 95 percent of the precincts in. However, NRO’s Henry Olsen says most of the uncounted vote is from Republican strongholds in central Pennsylvania, Chester County, and the Lehigh Valley. If that’s right, Toomey should squeak through.
In Illinois, meanwhile, Mark Kirk is 40,000 votes up with 87 percent of the precincts in. Am I the only one worried that bundles of ballots from Chicago and/or Philadelphia may suddenly be discovered in the dying moments of these races?
UPDATE: KIrk is now 75,000 ahead with 95 percent of precincts reporting. That’s a lot of dead folks the Dems need to find.
Toomey is 60,000 up with 99 percent of precincts in. Not long ago, Toomey was way up in the polls. But if you think about it, Pennsylvania is awfully blue for someone as conservative as Toomey to won in a romp. And all that really matters is that he win.
