(Harrisburg) -- Three state House races remain too close to call, but if current totals hold, it'll mean a wash for the two parties in the 203-seat chamber.

Republican Representative Tom Quigley of Montgomery County trailed by 216 votes last night, with all precincts reporting.

If Quigley loses, it'll cancel out a G-O-P pickup of a Clearfield County seat long held by retiring Democratic Representative Bud George.

Also uncalled is an Allegheny County contest, where Republican Representative Rick Saccone holds a 36-vote lead over the incumbent he unseated in 20-10, Democrat Dave Levdansky.

Reppresentative Nick Micozzie, a Delaware County Republican, leads by 119 votes with 41 of 44 precincts reporting.

The current results would produce a Republican majority of 111 to 92. Provisional and absentee ballots could change the final tally.
