All Eyes on Pennsylvania Tonight

Republicans are in the final hours of their frantic, all-out bid to save a Pennsylvania congressional district in the heart of Trump country from falling into Democratic hands in Tuesday's special election.

Democrat Conor Lamb, a 33-year-old Marine veteran and former prosecutor, holds a slight lead among likely voters over Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone, a Monmouth University poll released on the eve of the 18th District election shows.
It's left the GOP bracing for what would be its most embarrassing -- and ominous -- loss since Donald Trump took office. Republicans have spent more than $10 million to prevent a defeat in the district, which Trump won in 2016 by 20 percentage points.
If Lamb wins, or even comes close, it will be a signal that Republicans are in danger even in districts where Trump was won handily in 2016, and raise Democratic hopes of capturing the House and Senate this fall. The race would also serve as a model for Democrats running in deep-red districts across the country.

"The world is watching," Trump said in an appearance in the district Saturday night, upping the pressure for Saccone to deliver on Tuesday.

Sounds like Democrat Lamb is a Trump supporting wolf in Dem clothing.

So the new Dem model to win is go on tv and shoot assault rifles and praise Trump?

Quote:
Particularly worrying for Republicans is that Lamb has managed to parry the attacks they've hoped will work across the map. He aired a television ad noting that he opposes House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, who is deeply unpopular with conservative voters.
Lamb has run to the right of most Democrats on a series of issues. He's said he personally opposes abortion. His first campaign ad featured him shooting a semiautomatic rifle, and he's opposed new gun control measures in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, shootings.

Various political reporters have said that in private, the Republican President has strongly criticized Saccone, calling him a weak candidate.

But how much of that is him reading the writing on the wall and wanting to look like J is for genius?

At the rally supposedly in support of him, the Republican President said one sentence asking people to vote for him and then spent the rest of his speech (what else?) pumping himself up.

Maybe--just maybe--the Democrats will say "let's take a page from the GOP playbook, tell the voters anything they WANT to hear, lie through our teeth, change our position several times, romp with a porn star and WIN."

How about that?? It worked for you...didn't it?

Why don't you provide us with some statistics on that statement?? Let's compare and contrast the Obama lies v the Trump lies.

Scoot and get back to us.
