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.

Um last I checked the Appalachia region was trumpís strongest region and still the region where he has 60+ Approval ratings.

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 countyís in all the Appalachia region.

Yeah, well Pittsburgh is smack in the corner of PA. South Western PA.

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.

The Wisconsin special election race probably spooked them. North western Wisconsin is similar to south western Pennsylvania. Saccone has also been really struggling with fundraising and volunteers.

I think this is a $-driven freakout, not a polling driven freakout. The fundamentals favor Saccone, but if he's broke, he could fail.

I agree. Lamb is also the far superior candidate. He's young, good looking, a vet, charismatic, and very intelligent. I can see the many potential reasons why the GOP is freaking out.

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

REALLY want Conor to win! My town is in PA12 and the redistricting will probably put us in PA18.

Saw a bunch of Conor Lamb signs today. No sign of Saccone. This guy is running a very quiet campaign.

Saw a car with a few Conor Lamb bumper stickers on it in Pittsburgh this morning. Still no sign of Saccone.

I have a feeling this will become the most expensive House race in history...

BTW, if Lamb manages to win this thing, he becomes the instant favorite to challenge Toomey in 2022, especially if Dump gets re-elected.

Thoughts on that theory?


He's from the wrong part of the state.

What? If anything he is from the RIGHT part of the state to take down Toomey.

Just heard a Saccone ad on the radio. My god, it was awful. They are really trying to peddle this pathetic "Nancy and her lamb" smear. It then went onto some hardcore heavy-metal background music and bragged about how Saccone tortured terrorists and that's why he should be a congressman. He deserves to lose this race in a landslide.

Another fantastic ad by the Lamb campaign. This guy is really authentic.

Interesting note, but I read a tweet that the PA GOP moved Lamb's home into Doyle's PA-14 in their redraw map.

Wolf's going to veto it.

Still a pretty terrible ad. They are attacking him on a tax bill he couldn't vote on.

Even if Conor Lamb won, media sites like The Hill will still ignore it and try to find a reason to believe the blue wave is "dead".

At this point, if I had to say who would win, it would be Lamb.

Now we must ask ourselves whether this is Saccone blowing it because let's face it: he's an awful candidate, or it's because Lamb is a super strong candidate. I'm leaning towards it being a little bit of both.

It's pretty obvious that Lamb is no Ossoff.
