Where Conor Lamb, Rick Saccone Stand On The Issues

Where Conor Lamb, Rick Saccone Stand On The Issues

Yet Saccone struggled to raise money and stir the same passions that helped Trump on his way to the White House.

The Pennsylvania congressional candidate wants voters who haven't cast ballots yet in Tuesday's special election to know he'd go to Washington to have the president's back.

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

Trump Jr. pointed out that Sarris Candies is the flawless example of a small American business that has done well under the Trump tax reform bill, which he reminded supporters that no Democrat, no matter how moderate or centrist they are, supported.

Delano: Conor Lamb comes from a Democratic political family with deep roots in Allegheny County politics.

Lamb, whose strong fundraising let him to run only a few hundred fewer ads than Republicans, countered those attacks while counting on a massive coordinated campaign by labor unions - who have crossed with a Saccone on issues like right-to-work and pensions - to drive out votes.

They blamed Republican candidate Rick Saccone for not embracing Trump on the campaign trail. As with several other recent special elections, the contest has taken on national significance as Democrats see it as a possible harbinger of their ability to flip control of Congress in the upcoming midterm elections in November.

The Democrat, 33-year old Marine Corps veteran and former assistant USA attorney Conor Lamb is taking on 60-year old, four-term state representative Rick Saccone to represent the southwestern Pennsylvania district where President Donald Trump defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by almost 20 points in the 2016 presidential election.

"The Democrats. they're throwing everything they can at this race", he said. And largely from outside GOP groups supporting Saccone.

Karti Chidambaram remanded in 13-day judicial custody in Inx Media case
The Court agreed to Karti's demand for medicines and spectacle but rejected his demand to provide him with home cook food. It later revised the figure to $1 million (about Rs 6.50 crore at the current exchange rate and Rs 4.50 crore in 2007).

A new Monmouth University Poll released Monday (a day before the election) shows Lamb pulling away slightly, jumping to a 6 point lead ahead of Saccone, 51 percent to 45 percent.

Meanwhile, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told ABC News the election was not "really a referendum on Donald Trump" but "a referendum on Rick Saccone".

One only needs to look to Lamb's campaign website to see that's all too likely.

Callaway voted for Trump in 2016 because, he said, he wanted change.

On Tuesday, the president tweeted, "The Economy is raging, at an all time high, and is set to get even better". Jobs and wages up. Rick Saccone discussed his congressional bid on FOX Business' "Mornings with Maria". Trump had appeared at a rally for Saccone over the weekend.

"I've talked to so many of these [people] on the left, and they have a hatred for our president", said Saccone.

Once again, those who religiously follow American politics will be watching a special election Tuesday for signs that Democrats could be headed toward a wave election this fall. Democrats are trying to use Trump's poll numbers to show that tides have turned with a Saccone loss, and Republicans are attempting to demonstrate that things are just fine in the Trump administration.

Trump has put his full force behind Saccone. Lamb supports gun-owners rights and opposed a proposal to raise the minimum purchase age for a rifle to 21, but backs expanding background checks.

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.
