Democrat Holds Slight Lead In Congressional District Trump Won By 20 Points

13 March 2018

The tariffs on steel and aluminum Trump has announced are tailor-made for blue-collar neighborhoods outside Pittsburgh, though the once-fabled "Steel City" has diversified its economy around sectors such as technology and health care in the 21st century.

"The Democrats have nominated the ideal candidate, because he fits the profile of the electorate. They need you to be fully dependent on them", he said. If Lamb wins, it will show that Democrats are headed for a wave that will sweep the House into their control.

Democrats swept to victory in governor's races in Virginia and New Jersey, and Senator Doug Jones surprised Republican candidate Roy Moore in the Alabama special election race in December 2017. Earlier polling showed Saccone with a more significant edge in the race. "This isn't on the forefront of everyone's mind, but they have to realize it because they have to realize that anyone going in there, they're going to do what all the other Democrats have done".

Monmouth University found Lamb leading in all of its turnout models. These out-of-state dollars give the embattled state representative lots of firepower on the airwaves, but they are putting off many local voters who say they do not want to be patronised by opaque groups. If the seat becomes vacant in the second year, you'll just have to wait until Election Day in November.

Mnuchin also argued the press should pay less attention to Trump's rally speeches and more attention to his policies, such as his announcement on tariffs last week. Neither Lamb nor Saccone has made the ongoing Russian Federation investigation bedeviling Trump part of his pitch, but the paper insisted the country must not "dive into so great a distraction".

Republicans are preemptively trashing Saccone, the GOP nominee, in an effort to blame any possible loss on the candidate versus the party itself, especially in light of Trump's poor approval ratings.

Federer moves on, Stephens loses again at Indian Wells
Second-seeded Marin Cilic of Croatia and eighth-seeded American Jack Sock both earned second-round wins in straight sets. The Swiss legend, who is targeting a record sixth title at Indian Wells, was in control from the off.

On the final day of campaigning, Donald Trump Jr. traveled through a candy shop with Saccone, imploring Republicans to vote and criticizing the media for focusing on criticism of Saccone.

"I haven't been this excited about a congressional election in years", she says.

But Saccone has not had much luck running on the Republican national agenda.

Here as elsewhere, Republicans have counted on their $1.5 trillion tax cut to counter voter discontent with the turbulence surrounding Trump.

"They're hoping this is something that potentially, in the grand calculus, could throw Saccone over the top", said Republican strategist Ford O'Connell. The average across all congressional districts was 10.4 percent.

Lamb, who has the backing of unionized steelworkers, says he agrees with the planned tariffs.

Congress MLAs suspended from T-Assembly
He threw one headphone half way through the Governor's address, which hit the table and fell to the carpet. Legislative Affairs minister T Harish Rao said the Congress came with a clear intent to clear ruckus.

"We're very concerned about this race", one national Republican involved in the campaign told TPM. One Republican ad portrays Mr Lamb, who insists he will not back Nancy Pelosi, the minority leader at the House, as a sheep of Ms Pelosi who would immediately join her liberal flock once in Washington, DC. He favors enforcing existing gun laws and improving the current system of background checks over setting new gun restrictions.

Tuesday's special election was triggered by Murphy resigning from the seat he held for almost 15 years, following a sex scandal. A Democratic win could fuel candidate recruitment and fundraising, and reclaiming the House remains a relative long shot, said Philip Harold, a professor of political science at Robert Morris University in Moon Township, Penn., which is within the 18th district.

Democrats must flip 24 GOP-held seats to claim a House majority.

His biggest concern going into Tuesday's election and also as the 2018 midterms approach was making sure the voters who got his father elected by coming out to vote don't get complacent. According to Axios, he is not-so-privately dumping on Saccone and his campaign, calling the Republican "weak".

Outside Republican groups, led by the National Republican Congressional Committee and Congressional Leadership, Fund have spent at least $8.1 million to keep Saccone afloat, according to the Washington-based Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks money in campaigns. In fact, images of Pelosi, that bogeywoman of the right, her mouth pinched, her visage darkened, are featured in most GOP anti-Lamb spots.
