Just for the record, all the absentee ballots have finally been counted in the Pennsylvania 18th district special election, and Conor Lamb is the winner by 627 votes. All that’s left now is to see if Republicans try to overturn the decision via a recount.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone.
