The snow showers are worrying especially since it seems to be heavy in Allegheny.

Why does it seem like the media is treating this race as "local" whereas they treated ga-6 like a referendum on trump?

Almost all the articles put out recently on this race heavily mention Lamb's "conservative" views on key issues, saccone's bad campaign and corruption ties, but there seems to be less of a desire to connect a lamb victory to a referendum on trump

Terrific. Westmoreland will be his weakest. Allegheny will be his strongest. If Allegheny turnout is already at 30%, long before work gets out, and Westmoreland is expecting only 40% by the end of the day, then Lamb is in a good position.

Yeah Democrats here are sounding far too confident considering this is a tossup race in a heavily Republican district.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this. That's as far as I go. But I will celebrate it as much as the AL Senate victory if it happens because it would be an astounding victory.
same.

Hmm. I hadnít gotten that sense. Could be all the Hollywood types stumping in GA-6, which we havenít seen in PA-18.

I don't think Ossoff was a good candidate not much of a resume and didn't even live in the district, which I think mattered a lot.

Maybe I am just reading things wrong, but Lamb just seems less of a national dem than ossof was.

Could be. While being a much superior candidate/better fit for the district heís running in, he doesnít scratch the itch of the national media in the same way (worth recalling that CNN and a number of other large media firms are based in Atlanta, which is increasingly a favored filming site too)

Part of me is worried that the D wave narrative will become the consensus if Lamb wins. It's true, but I'd prefer Republicans and the pundits to be surprised when the wave hits. Though otoh Lamb may spur some more GOP retirements so that'd be good.

It's stupid but the overconfidence is making me less and less confident.

Yea especially Steel seems cocky. He may be right but there are a lot of unknowns as this point and this is still a fairly hard district for Dems to win.

Yes. I'm still burned from turnout reports that were saying that there was no way HRC would lose this.

I've been cocky as hell about this race since the big November landslides and a Democrat being elected in Alabama of all places lol. I have been spoiled election wise lately.

The D wave narrative should have become the consensus after Alabama. It didnít. And I guarantee you many right leaning pundits will quickly write off Sacconeís loss should he lose.

I guess the situation will remain largely unchanged. Good.

The thing is this shouldn't have ever been a tossup. That's the reason for confidence, and it's not unwarrented.

Republicans may be playing the expectations game to an extent, but even so, why do they feel like they need to, unless they are legitimately worried about Lamb winning, and want to make it seem like it wonít be that big of a deal?
