Madonna Predicts Recount in Special Election

F&M College Pollster Dr. Terry Madonna was a guest Wednesday morning on WNPV’s AM Edition weighing in on the special election in the 18th Congressional District between Conor Lamb and Rick Saccone.

Madonna says, while Lamb has declared himself the winner of the election, it’s not likely to end that way.

“There’s a big takeaway, how many different ways can you say recount. The losing candidate will easily be able to get signatures on petition legally required to get that recount.”

Madonna says, Lamb connected with voters because of his pro-gun and union stance. Saccone was able to draw voters from Trump’s visit to the region before the election and the President success in the region during the Presidential election.
