Pennsylvania Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone announced late Wednesday that he conceded the 18th District special election to Democrat Conor Lamb. But it could be several days before Lamb is sworn into office.

Lamb, a Marine veteran and federal prosecutor, narrowly won the March 13 special election to replace former GOP Rep. Tim Murphy, who resigned amid scandal after revelations that the anti-abortion lawmaker encouraged his mistress to have an abortion.
