Everyone Will Misread the Results of This Special Election

Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said Pennsylvania congressional candidate Conor Lamb "reminds me of my son" during a campaign rally ahead of the March 13 special election.

And the themes that the GOP has highlighted in the special election - namely tax cuts and opposition to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi - are the centerpieces of the party's 2018 campaign plan.

"I think the one thing that has put this race in play is that it is a heavily unionized district", said Mukis. In addition to Trump's Saturday appearance, Donald Trump Jr.is scheduled to rally local voters on Monday. Some residents of the working-class Pittsburgh suburb were surprised to see the Democratic candidate at their doorstep.

Former Vice President Joe Biden campaigned on Lamb's behalf earlier in the week, but national Democrats were not expected to bring in additional high-profile surrogates in the campaign's waning days. Lamb has out-fundraised his opponent by a significant margin, and it certainly appears that the Democrat has the momentum in the race - with recent pieces in Politico and Bloomberg News featuring Washington Republicans in and out of the Trump administration trashing Saccone's performance as a candidate.

Overall, national groups allied with the GOP have spent almost $8 million on advertising in the race, a figure that doesn't include logistical support on the ground and is more than seven times the amount invested by national Democratic allies unaffiliated with the Lamb campaign.

Vice President Mike Pence and Mr. Trump's daughter, Ivanka, have also have campaigned with Mr. Saccone. But the Democratic Party platform is not.

In campaigning for the seat, Saccone, posted only two public events on his Facebook page for the seven-day period before the election.

Lamb has largely shied away from links the national party.

CMS tells Idaho it must comply with the Affordable Care Act
That could include fining insurance companies $100 a day for every person they insure on a non-ACA compliant plan. It is a victory for the rule of law, given how openly Idaho was defying the ACA.

"Remember, a job is about a lot more than a paycheck", he told the crowd. "So I don't believe it".

Conway's appearance comes just days after a federal watchdog determined that she violated the federal law prohibiting government officials from using their positions to influence political campaigns. The White House disputed the independent agency's findings.

Lamb, meanwhile, shrugged off news of the White House's aggressive strategy when asked late Wednesday.

In a brief interview as volunteers buzzed through the two-story office, the first-time candidate insisted that winning elections isn't "rocket science". It's people that are from here talking to neighbors and going to their churches.

"I'd like to meet him", Debich says.

But after Murphy's resignation this fall, Republicans are scrambling to savethis mostly working-class district outside of Pittsburgh from turning blue in Tuesday's special election - pouring millions of dollars into the race and dispatching President Trump to rev up the GOP base.

While the seat is safely Democratic - the only Republican challenger is a wackadoodle bent on gaining attention rather than votes - a Newman win would kick out one more moderate and make the Democrat House more progressive.

"We'll find out", Lamb said.
