Democrat Conor Lamb sealed his stunning upset in a special election for a Pennsylvania U.S. House seat that had been in Republican hands for 15 years with a concession from his Republican opponent, state Representative Rick Saccone, a week after voting ended.

"While there are less than 800 votes separating us, the people of the 18th District deserve to have a voice representing them in Congress," Saccone said in a statement. Lamb, 33, said in a tweet that Saccone congratulated him and conceded in a phone call.
