Pennsylvania Coal Mine Closing As Special Election For Congress Happens In District

M- Wikipedia

The White House did much more for Saccone, sending in Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, and White House advisers Kellyanne Conway and Ivanka Trump.

The victor replaces Republican Tim Murphy, who resigned in October amid a sex scandal. "He has no record, c'mon on", Saccone said.

Delano: Conor Lamb comes from a Democratic political family with deep roots in Allegheny County politics. Lamb has wooed conservative voters at the same time national Democratic money has poured in to bankroll a win.

But unions have lined up behind Lamb and hammered Saccone as a union foe during his tenure as a state lawmaker.

Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone and Democratic former prosecutor Conor Lamb square off Tuesday in a special election in Pennsylvania's 18th District.

He says Democrats are "throwing everything they can at this race" because it's a rare open seat.

A 68-year-old retired engineer who described himself as a "John Kasich-Daddy Bush Republican", Bruce Bancroft said he always voted for Murphy, but finds Saccone too strident for the district and an already acrimonious Congress. An NRCC radio ad running through the election reminds voters that Trump called Saccone "a great guy". The candidate campaigned with him twice.

The outcome carries major implications for the president and congressional Republicans fighting to hold onto their majority in November's midterm elections. But almost as much of the district is suburban and includes some of the swing voters that Republicans will have to convince if they are going to hold on to the U.S. House nationally. Jobs and wages up.

Gelb voted for Saccone because he wants representatives loyal to the president he elected.

Over the weekend, Lamb celebrated an endorsement from the United Mine Workers, a union that sat out the 2016 election rather than endorse Trump or Hillary Clinton.

"We worked really hard for it and I think it paid off", he said.

Chip adds that the only D name for a boy that he can come up with is "Dragon", which sends Gage into a giggling fit. The couple met their Twitter announcer Gage while at the Tim Tebow Foundation golf weekend .

Polls are open in western Pennsylvania as voters settle a high profile special congressional race being watched for clues to the upcoming midterm elections. "Vote for Rick Saccone, and we can leave right now", Trump said immediately after greeting the crowd at a rally Saturday night outside Pittsburgh.

Dr. Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, says Republicans could pay a political price for Murphy's hypocritical actions. He resigned last fall.

The most money spent on a special House race - or any House race - was $55 million previous year in suburban Atlanta, in Democrats' failed effort to take a GOP-held seat.

Lamb may opt to run for a full two-year term in the new 17th District, which will be more favorable terrain for Democrats, while Saccone could opt for the more conservative 14th District.

Meanwhile. Lamb, painted as a "moderate" Democrat by Establishment Media, supports Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion.

But the region has doesn't have as many steelworkers as it did in the industry's heydays, even if there's still a cultural association. They've painted Lamb as a lackey of House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California and weak on immigration.

That initial finding is one of more than 40 in a draft report spanning over 150 pages that Republicans said would be shared with Democrats for review and comment on Tuesday. Polls close at 8 p.m., and results will be tallied on the Department of State's website.

President Donald Trump dominated the district in 2016 and has offered his backing to Saccone.

Following last month's shooting in Parkland, both Saccone and the NRA alike attempted to shift focus from guns to "failings" on the part of law enforcement, which the NRA has blamed for dropping the ball, despite being warned of the shooter's troubling behavior months earlier.

The victor replaces Republican Tim Murphy, who resigned in October amid a sex scandal.
