It's interesting. He's going on the offensive against Pelosi in that ad. If Democrats win a narrow majority, then I suppose Pelosi will *have* to go, no? Too many Democrats will have made this pledge.

Only Lamb, Ojeda, and Paul Davis have made the pledge to my knowledge. Only one who might be part of a narrow majority is Davis. Lamb and Ojeda would only win in Nov. '18 on a night where Dems are winning 250+ seats.

If Lamb somehow manages to win this, does anyone know if his district would be likely to become any more Democratic-leaning under court-imposed districts? He'd need all the help he can get to hold on again in 2018 and 2020.

I'm guessing he loses eastern Westmoreland County and gains parts of the southern Monongahela Valley in eastern Greene and Washington County and western Fayette County, and this would help him marginally. I don't think moving further into Allegheny is in the cards and that would make a real difference. A court-ordered map would look more like an enlarged version of the district Frank Mascara represented 20+ years ago.

I have just googled "Conor Lamb" (I didn't even know that PA-18 has a special election soon) and he looks like a Democratic Mike Naso.

Seems like fairly boilerplate talking points for a historically Republican district.

Conor Lamb is the most beautiful Catholic in the history of Pennsylvania politics. I have not been this excited about a candidate in years!

Bold prediction: if Lamb actually wins and manages to hold on until 2022 (a singularly long shot), he'll be a shoo-in to move up and face Toomey.

I disagree. There are better candidates to face Toomey.

Ugh, if the PA SC strikes down Gerrymandering I'll probably be in PA-18. I REALLY want Conor to represent me but it won't happen Sad

This race must be so frustrating for Republicans. The Democratic candidate is young, good looking, a veteran and goes around speaking to voters wearing his inoffensive Steelers jacket and talking about how both parties and all leadership is bad. Whereas Republicans have..... some old guy who's a total leadership kiss ass and has no charisma or fundraising skills whatsoever.

Pretty sure that Harry Reid has a machine in his basement that can pump out young, charismatic, good-looking candidates on demand for tough races (Kander, O'Rourke, Perriello, Lamb)

Probably a Republican win in a place where you would expect a Republican win.

Eh, it doesn't really matter. Saccone should have a fairly easy time winning anyways.

Sure, the district is definitely more Republican-leaning than anything, but what I'm saying is that they probably dislike having to spend so much and get so involved defending a seat they really shouldn't be needing to defend.

Quietly, though. Overnationalization is what killed Ossoff, and if that happens here, in an anti establishment, populist district, the blowback could be worse.
