Republicans fight on

The Fearless One, Mario Cattabiani, reports from Harrisburg:

Al Bowman, spokesman for the House Republican Campaign Committee, said the party is far from the point of conceding the race, or the majority. GOP lawyers and Republican campaign leaders plan on meeting with Royer tonight to discuss options, he said.

Bowman said they are considering asking for a recount of all votes cast in the district. He said the move makes sense given that this year was the first time Chester County used the new voting machines.

"At this point, the election is not over yet. We are looking at option to see what’s next," Bowman said.

Bowman said the party has five days until the county certifies the results to ask for a recount. He said there are other legal options, too, but he declined to elaborate on them.

"It’s going to be part of the discussions. At this point, it’s only 23 votes."
