    The Democrats didnít even field a candidate in 2016 and Trump won the district by 20 points.

    Interesting listening in this morning it appears that Lamb at a minimum is a centrist and obviously received a number of moderate Republican votes. If the Dems can begin to move away from the Libtard label toward the middle they could become a legitimate political movement again while isolating the Pubs to the extreme right.

    If they move ahead and put new faces in Congressional leadership they would effectively appear to be a rejuvenated party.

    On the other hand if Eric Holder's campaign gains traction in the party one has to say..here we go again!

    Nothing... and I mean nothing scares the GOP more than Russian blackmail.

    Classy dude.

    Democratic Congressional candidate Conor Lamb said Wednesday that his claimed victory in Tuesday’s special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional district came, at least in part, thanks to supporters of President Donald Trump who voted for him.

    “Look, I was at a lot of polling places yesterday with cars parked outside of them that had president Trump's bumper sticker on them. So he's a popular person here,” Lamb told CNN’s “New Day” on Wednesday. “But I think that what happens when you campaign in real life as much as possible is that those divisions go away. Everyone gave me a fair shake and I know that there are people that voted for the president who also voted for me. And, you know, I thank them for hearing me out.”

    The Pennsylvania race proves it: Trump is a weight around the GOP’s neck

    In the Pennsylvania 18th District special election, with 99 percent of the vote in (not all absentee ballots yet counted), Democrat Conor Lamb leads Republican Rick Saccone by several hundred votes. Saccone has not yet conceded, but polling expert David Wasserman says there aren’t enough votes left to change the outcome. It shouldn’t have been remotely competitive.

    The race should be a blaring wake-up call to Republicans (“Commence panicking!”). This blue-collar district in the Rust Belt, ideally designed for President Trump, gave him a 20-point margin of victory 16 months ago. Moreover, the district has consistently voted Republican over the past few election cycles, and to top it off, Trump personally visited there twice, most recently on Saturday. Trump even announced tariffs designed to placate steel workers. And yet that 20-point advantage disappeared, thanks to massive Democratic turnout.

    Republicans were out spinning gullible reporters. We expected much worse! This will motivate our voters! Nonsense. This is nothing short of a disaster for Republicans. Here’s why:

    Ever the uniter, Saccone says the Democrats hate America, Trump, and God.

    I had never heard of him before this week. Has he always been a gigantic tool or is he just mad he is losing what was a safe House seat the Democrats havenít even bothered putting a token candidate up for in six years?

    I had never heard of Saccone before and, hope I never hear of him again. Anybody who makes a statement that Democrats hate America and God is a real nut case, unfortunately there are a bunch like him still in Washington.
