What's left?

Republicans could seek a full recount within five days of the election board certifying the results, which could happen as soon as Thursday.

Another outstanding issue is the 10 provisional ballots and one absentee ballot that were challenged before the election board. But even if every ballot broke for the Republican, it still wouldn't close the gap.

When we track down an RIC -- a Republican in Charge -- we will post something on their next step.

UPDATE: Gathering news in real time is ug-ly. A call to the Pennsylvania Department of State turned up a slightly different timeline on what happens next.

According to spokeswoman Cathy Ennis, a candidate can appeal to the Commonwealth Court within 5 calendar days of a final ballot count. Once that period passes, and if no challenges are filed, the county certifies the results and sends them to the state.

I anyone in charge? It seems like the law of the jungle all over Republican circles these days.
