Two of the three Lancaster County Commissioners who make up the Lancaster election board apparently got a testosterone shot and are holding fast on a decision to hold off on counting mail-in ballots that come in after the polls close.

Which is awesome.

Josh Parsons and Ray D’Agostino, both establishment Republicans, aren’t giving into pressure. Meanwhile, the one Democrat on the commission, Craig Lehman, as usual, is yelling at the clouds.

Reportedly, the Parsons and D’Agostino – both of whom often bend to liberal pressure – stated that they don’t want those votes that come in after the polls close counted in case the Supreme Court rules that they shouldn’t be counted, since it would be impossible to remove those votes from the overall counts.

Democrats, who hope to benefit from votes they find after the polls close, are, of course, upset. Stay mad.

A Pennsylvania bakery that has successfully predicted the last three presidential elections with its cookie poll has revealed the final tally in its Trump-Biden contest ahead of Election Day.

The results as of Sunday afternoon, while not the official tally, were the final numbers released by Lochel’s Bakery of Hatboro, Pa., before Americans find out who has won the actual presidential election.

They show President Trump leading former Vice President Joe Biden handily, with a staggering 27,903 red Trump cookies sold compared to just 5,114 blue Biden cookies.

Good story here and needed because there’s big time shenanigans going on over in Philadelphia.

Our sources in the state GOP who gave us the skinny on the internal polls back in June when the Trump state campaign was in chaos are now telling us they’re expecting two things:

  1. A decisive victory in the count today for Team Trump in Pennsylvania.
  2. That PA Democrats will use the three-day mail period to “find” enough votes to challenge a Trump victory, which will go to court.

This is internal party conjecture but they haven’t been wrong yet, and given how nakedly and aggressively partisan PA AG Josh Shapiro has been, it sounds likely.

If you’re going to the polls to vote, leave your MAGA hats and t-shirts or your Biden buttons and tiaras at home. Electioneering is not allowed in polling sites and you will not be allowed in. Make sure you get to vote.

Fly your colors afterward and tonight at your victory parties.
