At Saturday rally in Pennsylvania, Trump upstages Saccone

At Saturday rally in Pennsylvania, Trump upstages Saccone

Lamb's bump in the polls comes as Republicans have become increasingly anxious about a Democratic upset in a western Pennsylvania district that President TrumpDonald John TrumpAccuser says Trump should be afraid of the truth Woman behind pro-Trump Facebook page denies being influenced by Russians Shulkin says he has White House approval to root out "subversion" at VA MORE won by almost 20 points in 2016.

Lamb leads Saccone, 51 percent to 45 percent, the poll shows - using a turnout model that mirrors a Democratic surge that's appeared in other special elections throughout the a year ago.

Emerson College professor Spencer Kimball oversaw a poll in early March that found Lamb had a small lead within the poll's margin of error.

But the Democrats Lamb has brought into the district to campaign for him, including Biden, Rep. Joe Kennedy, D-Mass., and former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, all show his desire to eschew any connection to the progressive base of the Democratic Party.

Recent polls have shown either candidate in the lead. Turnout was also up in Texas' Democratic primary last week, another sign that voters on the left are energized heading into the 2018 midterms.

Win or lose tomorrow, Lamb could run in November in a reconfigured district, numbered the 17th, where Rep. Keith Rothfus (R) is expected to seek re-election.

Will Republicans will cross party lines?

Lamb, 33, has been hard for Republicans to depict as a liberal because of his background, message discipline and mixed political views that include opposing Pelosi (D-Calif.) and supporting more natural-gas drilling. Of the 85 races now viewed as competitive, 55 are in congressional districts that Trump won in 2016, according to the University of Virginia Center for Politics.

After drubbing the Cleveland Cavaliers on March 11, they took another step closer to that goal. "There's not much you can do". The Cavaliers suffered a 127-113 defeat to LA Lakers , but James certainly provided a bit of magic.

Can Democrats compete in Republican districts they need to recapture the House?

Is trade a winning issue? But he barely mentioned the candidate he was ostensibly there to back, instead spending most of his speech attacking his own possible 2020 opponents and the media, discussing North Korea and unveiling his 2020 slogan ("Keep America great") and touting his new steel tariffs, a policy that plays well in the district and both Lamb and Saccone support. He also avoids criticizing Trump.

Likely voters - who were largely polled before the President's campaign event - said they are divided on Trump's job performance: 49% approve and 49% disapprove. A member of the Christian right, he is pro-life, anti-union, pro-gun and a fierce defender of the second amendment. "We will have a 25 percent tariff on foreign steel and a 10 percent tariff on foreign aluminum when the product comes across our borders".

"A lot of steel mills are now opening up because of what I did", the president said of his introduction of tariffs. He supports Trump's tariffs.

A day before voters in the district head to the polls, Lamb holds a 6-point advantage, leading Saccone 51 percent to 45 percent. Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter, recently appeared next to Mr Saccone in Mount Lebanon.

GOP take: Saccone was a poor candidate, while Lamb was a very good one. Additionally, Mr Lamb is running as a considerably moderate Democrat, personally opposed to abortion and to new gun control legislation. But it might be a blueprint for other Democrats running in House districts that Trump carried easily in 2016. Lamb hails from an established Allegheny County political family and pitches himself as independent-minded.

Murphy, an eight-term congressman who had union support, never had a close election and had no Democratic challenger in his last two elections. Republicans notched several wins in the first half of 2017, but that momentum was stopped with Democratic victories in Virginia and Alabama at the end of the year. The victor on Tuesday will, if he jumps back in, be running for a different seat come November, perhaps in the state's newly drawn 14th or 17th districts. When Trump announced past year that he was withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate agreement, he said he was doing so because he was defending Pittsburgh, not Paris.

Todd, whom Trump derided throughout the campaign as "sleepy eyes Chuck Todd", responded to Mnuchin with a deadpan tone. Tuesday's results will provide a bit of clarity as both parties prepare for the midterms.
