Pennsylvania House Race Seen as a Test for Both Parties

Republican Rick Saccone talks with reporters during a campaign stop at the party call center in Pittsburgh Friday

If the rest of the 2016 Clinton-Trump modeling performance stayed the same and if, for example, Lamb was able to bring out his own wave of Democratic voters and increase the number of votes in the most heavily Democratic precincts so those areas made up 10 percentage points more of total vote as compared to in 2016, that still would only get him within 15 percent of Republican Rick Saccone in the special election. Should Lamb win, it would be another indication of a hard road ahead for the GOP in this year's midterms.

In what's become a surprisingly tight race, Democrat Conor Lamb will face Republican Rick Saccone.

A Saccone loss would be the first loss of a Republican seat in the House of Representatives since Mr Trump took office, although Republicans would still have control of the chamber.

"Our new slogan.is going to be".

Likely voters - who were largely polled before the President's campaign event - said they are divided on Trump's job performance: 49% approve and 49% disapprove. "He doesn't care about us", Trump said.

"I've already said on the front page of the newspaper that I don't support Nancy Pelosi", Lamb says in the ad.

Trump referred to Lamb as "Lamb the sham". We speak to Widney Brown, the managing director of policy at the Drug Policy Alliance. So to go against the party lines and go against that agenda doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

He then launched into a robotic imitation of someone being "presidential".

"Do me a favor".

Trump said he heard the 33-year-old Lamb was "nice-looking" but said, "I think I'm better-looking than him. I do. I do. I do".

Trump acknowledged those dynamics, noting talk of Lamb as a handsome candidate.

That case was originally being investigated as a suspicious death but has now been reclassified as a homicide investigation. Police say to not handle any suspicious package found on a front porch, but to instead call 911 so they can inspect it.

Trump's visit "is a double-edged sword in the district because it will fire both sides up equally", said Mark Nevins, a Philadelphia-based Democratic strategist. "But that's OK", he added, "because that's what we do". "It was great to see North Korea going and participating". But Saccone has struggled with his own fundraising and hasn't run as aggressive a campaign as Lamb, prompting criticism from Republicans in Washington who quietly concede that Lamb is a stronger campaigner.

The president mentioned crime and the gang MS-13 - just as he had in his recent State of the Union address.

Trump said that allowing prosecutors to seek the death penalty for drug dealers - an idea he said he got from China's President Xi Jinping - is "a discussion we have to start thinking about".

The White House ended up far to the right of most of these proposals. "We're gonna tax Mercedes Benz". "People have paid into these programs over the course of a lifetime", Lamb told more than 300 retired coal miners and Democratic activists Sunday in Waynesburg, 40 miles south of Pittsburgh.

Trump talked about trade with Mexico and Canada and the ongoing NAFTA negotiations. She decided months ago to back Republican Rick Saccone for one reason: opposition to abortion rights.

In one of the rally's more surreal moments, the president actually provided the crowd with an extended, almost two-minute impression of being presidential that mocked the more straight-laced style of previous presidents and suggested that Trump's looser style is more entertaining. But he also opposes sweeping gun restrictions, endorses Trump's new steel tariffs, and avoids attacking the president. "The worst. So fake". Trump called the network "fake as hell CNN".

He called an African-American congresswoman a "very low-IQ individual" and bashed the moderator of NBC's "Meet the Press" as a "sleeping son of a bitch".

The president is set to speak at Atlantic Aviation, capping a week in which he announced the imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs, and three days before the election in a traditionally Republican district. "Are you with me on that?"

"This is the time to close the deal", Saccone implored to supporters.

Saturday's appearance was the president's second of the special election campaign.

"There's also a segment of undecideds that hopefully they'll remember why they voted for Trump to begin with, and they'll come out and vote for me", Saccone said before talking to natural gas workers in Canonsburg.
