There were some pretty big elections on Tuesday, including the still-contested special election in Ohio's solidly red 12th congressional district between Democrat Danny O'Connor and Republican Troy Balderson, Stephen Colbert said on Wednesday's Late Show. "If the vote difference tightens any further, it could trigger an automatic recount under Ohio election law — and under Ohio election law, whoever loses the recount has to go to the Lakers." Tuesday's elections also made history because now a record 11 women are gubernatorial nominees, Kansas Democrats nominated an openly gay Native American first-time candidate for Congress, and Kansas Rep. Ron Estes (R) won his primary challenge against a different Ron Estes. Colbert had a song about that last victory/defeat.
Meanwhile, President Trump may still be on vacation at his golf club in New Jersey, Colbert said, "but he hasn't forgotten about the Mueller investigation," mentioning ending the special counsel's investigation "about 20 times" with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) over golf on Sunday. "You know what they say: Trying the same thing over and over again and expecting a different restful is the definition of a very stable genius," he said. And then he played some imagined, increasingly bonkers voicemails from Trump to Graham. Watch below. Peter Weber
