How "last minute" are we talking?

Were the 100+ write-ins all separate people or all Salvatore T. Rizzo, Jr.?

And what's the point anyway? 100 votes for a singular write in hardly matches the 15,000+ votes Freeman received. Field a candidate if you want to make a point.

I wrote in my own name, because this guy is not good for most of PA. He is for the blue part of the state were all the people have their hands out.
