Republicans, Democrats both think voters are deplorable

Republicans, Democrats both think voters are deplorable

During his last campaign rally before Tuesday's special election, Saccone said Democrats continue to repeat a false narrative of failure against the Trump administration.

Delano: In a district that Donald Trump won by almost 20 points and no Democrat has come close to winning in decades, it's undeniable, in my view, that this election is a referendum on the performance of President Trump.

Democrats must flip 24 Republican-held seats to gain the House majority.

Saccone and Lamb are competing in the 18th District to replace Republican Tim Murphy, who resigned last October amid personal scandal.

"It's widely expected that we will lose", said Alex Conant, a GOP strategist not involved in the race who was a top aide on Florida Sen.

In a final-hours message on Fox Business Network, Saccone said that he's ready and willing to help Trump.

The blame game began early for why the Republican district was appearing to lean toward Democrats.

He added at another point: "I hate to put pressure on you, Rick".

The victor of the election will have a short stint in Washington before the midterm elections in November.

Rick Saccone. Brendan McDermid/Reuters A separate Republican who worked on Trump's campaign said the results of the race, which looks as if it will end up in a tight finish, will be more about Lamb being "a really good candidate" than Saccone "being a bad candidate". Even so, the race has garnered substantial attention, with national media and political parties closely watching the "Trump Country" election as a referendum on the president.

But Saccone has struggled as a candidate and a fundraiser while Lamb has shined.

As the polls throughout the race continued to show a tight race, the White House increasingly tried to bolster Saccone, with Trump holding a campaign event this past Saturday and the president's son Donald Trump, Jr., visiting on Monday. Considering that most people either worship God or don't believe in him as opposed to expressing hatred, it seems most likely that some of those voters disagreed with Saccone's religious beliefs about God.

Campaign spending in a pivotal special election in Pennsylvania reached more than $17.5 million on the eve of Election Day, with most of the money pouring in from Republican and conservative groups supporting GOP House candidate Rick Saccone.

He said his accomplishments, like the president's weren't being fairly reported. Kim Ward. On the second ballot, Ward threw her support to Saccone, and he won handily. The theme of the speech was to get energized against Democrats and the Democratic Party.

"I guess I got a real big change, more than I anticipated", he said.

"We need guys like Rick Saccone to be in there fighting with my father", Trump Jr. said.

That is close to Clinton's description during the campaign of Trump voters as "a basket of deplorables", a remark she later regretted as a political strategy error, not as a statement offensive to people who voted for Trump.

And a win for Lamb on Tuesday would be huge.

The AFL-CIO counts 87,000 voters from union households - around a fifth of the electorate.

Barbara Barnes, a 67-year-old retired union pipe fitter from Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, said she appreciates that Lamb is a young, educated veteran while saying that Saccone is too focused on social issues like abortion. When I texted Mike Cernovich, conspiracy theorist and king of the MAGA faction of the Internet, to get his thoughts, he was initially confused: "I don't even know who is running or that there was a race!" Trumka tells union voters Lamb "supported our agenda" so "now it's time to. support him". Few, if any, of the articles dedicated to the rally on sites like Breitbart and the Daily Caller attempted to extol the virtues of Saccone. Lamb has also said he would not support an assault weapons ban and that, although he is personally pro-life, he wouldn't support a 20-week abortion ban.
