Interesting, and a bit early too. I would've expected him to visit a bit closer to the election date. They must be sweating though.

I can't help but feel he's going to hurt Saccone by campaigning for him... PA has really soured on Trump since the election.

Look he won WEST VIRGINIA by the biggest margin in history. Eastern Kentucky he won every county first time that has happened in history. He only lost 3-7 county’s in all the Appalachia region.

^ Of course. But Pittsburgh itself is not in the district. And the southernmost part of Allegheny county (which is in 18th), is, probably, less Democratic then Pittsburgh. In addition - Trump won Washington county (most of which is in 18th) with 60%, Westmoreland county (large part of which is in 18th too) with 63.5%, and relatively small Greene county (also mostly in 18th) with 68.5%. I can easily believe that Trump's popularity decreased since November 2016, but hardly SO much.

Yeah. Being "local" is a plus, of course, but it doesn't neccessary mean being objective and knowledgeable...

The Gravis poll has Trump’s approval at 54% - 39% in the 18th among likely voters.

Trump carried the District 58.1% to 38.5%.

Of course Gravis likely voter sample may not include enough energized Democrat voters.

Yes. That's why see as most likely Republican win in high single digits (7-9%), instead of 15-20. But still - rather solid win.

2 months before an election in a red district.  I hope the Democrats do come home in this race and hopefully it tightens a bit.

Big coal mine in Greene County is shutting down 370 people to be laid off, should be an issue Dems talk about.

This is what I mean. Pennsylvania is souring on Trump, especially the western part of PA. The workers are realizing that Trump lied to them to get their votes. Who knows? This could be 370 workers plus their spouses and 18 year-old kids going to the polls for Conor Lamb.

191 workers are being let go a week and a half before the special, and they weren't even unionized. Lamb should pounce on this.

And Trump is probably coming next week to brag about how great things are..meanwhile close to 400 people will be out of work. Lamb or some group needs to be up on air, where is the small donor $$ for him?

Lamb needs to air an ad featuring the closing of the mine juxtaposed with Trump's remarks about bringing back coal and how he said there'd be so many coal jobs that miners wouldn't know what to do.

Have to be careful about running too much against Trump in this district. More like 'I'll help these miners find work in green/tech jobs, retraining etc.' 'Revitalize SWPA'. Maybe these people will actually listen now Rs can't blame 'WAR ON COAL'.

The thing is, you run ads showing Trump promising to bring these jobs back on the backdrop of this mine closure. Then what? Lamb promises to bring the jobs back? Why would voters believe him after just being burned? henster is right in that the focus should be on bringing in new industries and tech to the area but would the people who live there even want that?
