Skip to comments.GOP 'Flips' 48th District in PA Special Election
Posted on 05/16/2018 5:08:51 AM PDT by Helicondelta
Republican Tim ONeal cracked the 4,000-vote threshold in Washington Countys 48th Legislative District, according to unofficial returns from the Washington County elections office, and declared victory.
ONeal, a veteran of the Afghanistan War who earned a V for valor and a Bronze Star, advertised this in contrast to that of Mitchell, an attorney, whom he portrayed playing the video game Call of Duty.

That’s certainly good news. It’s good to see one flip our direction.
Barbara miller, staff writer, opines:
“Neuman and State Rep. Pam Snyder, whose 50th Legislative District includes Centerville and East Bethlehem Township were the last remnants of a Washington County that was once predominantly blue. Now theres only Snyder, who faces a challenge from Betsy Rohanna McClure.”
Barbara bemoans the Republican/Conservative red wave.
Maybe the Fake News Democrat media can stop crowing about the Blue Wave coming in November .nah.
THIS IS GREAT!
This was a BIG win in this district. The GOP didnt field a candidate here in 2016. In 2014, a red wave year, the Rats held this seat by a 58-41 margin. In March, Conor Lamb won this by 5.
The GOP fielded a really good, pro-life and pro-second Amendment candidate and crushed the Rats here last night.
Way to go, PA! MAGA!
rollin rollin rollin...
keep the red wave growin...
trumpers keep on blowin...
Will the drive by media cover this? /s
Good news - !
Was this a primary? The second part of title is “faces rematch with Mitchell in November”. What is the “flip” part of the title referring to? Does it refer to a D to R flip???
Was it State House or US House? I did read the article btw...
The dems crowing is a good thing. Just like the presidential election, if they are sure they will be winning the turn out will be smaller.
Im sure hell get as much attention from the media as Lambs narrow win did. /S
I thought O’Neal’s video game commercial was hilarious.
He portrayed Mitchell as a loser living in his mom’s basement, calling up to mother to bring him more food.
What blue wave?
Congrats to O’Neal.
A flip is a great thing.
Its going to be a perfectly RED wave!
I am sure this will be ignored by the MSM.
BLUE WAVE! uh, wait. uh, oh. maybe not, huh?
(bet there’s lots of upper-echelon Dems starting to panic about the midterms ...)
Any time a lawyer is defeated, something good results.
