Pennsylvania Special Election – CD18 Rick Saccone (R) vs Conor Lamb (D)…

The special election in Pennsylvania Congressional District 18 is today.  The polls close at 8:00pm EST.  The district political registration heavily favors the Democrat Conor Lamb with a +50,000 advantage in Democrat registered voters.  However, President Trump carried the mostly blue-collar district in 2016, and he supports Republican Rick Saccone.

Generally speaking the Democrat Conor Lamb is favored; and with that outcome in mind the media began using this likely Democrat win to position an anti-Trump narrative.  To counter that narrative President Trump went to PA and campaigned with Rick Saccone.  Both RNC and DNC have spent a lot of money on this temporary district race.

Democrat Conor Lamb is attempting to revive the extinct “blue-dog” model and has refuted Nancy Pelosi along with the far-left-wing of the Democrat party; while emphasizing his strong labor union relationships.  On the Republican side, the district is Pro-Trump on the national economics but candidate Rick Saccone has strongly supported ‘right-to-work’ policies which the local unions do not like.  So it’s a weird election.

    I am hearing 1398 remaining absentee ballots in Washington and Greene counties. 1808 in Westmoreland. That means if Saccone wins 1893-1313 he pulls it out. That’s 59% and totally doable!

      Non-absentee ballots were 56% in Westmoreland and Green for Saccone. 52% in Washington. This would signal maybe 58% and 54% for the absentees respectively per observations above. Hmm..barring margin of theft Saccone could swing it.

      Westmoreland absentee ballots already in the total. Leaving the difference of 579 with Washington & Greene’s left to factor in.
      MSNBC also said there are going to be a few hundred provisional ballots out and some military ballots.
      Feels like a recount likely.
      Best interview of the night. A woman rep at Lamb’s party talking about why the union supported him. Asked does that mean they gave up on Trump. Passionately replied no, they all still love Trump.

        Yes I read 13% in a pre-poll were Trump supporters. Sadly, they are being thankless to Trump by voting DL and putting the President in jeopardy. This is a lesson for the mid-terms. Postcards and words no longer mean much if supporters don’t thank Trump where it counts by voting for Trump’s pick. People are playing checkers and don’t seem to realize they are being ungrateful. Prayers are not enough. God will exact his wrath if the mid-terms don’t reflect thankfulness for all that President Trump has put himself amd his family through. Forget about KAGA 2020. It’s a joke if these type voters think they can blow him off in the mid-terms, embarass him, and expect him to run in 2020. If 2018 mid-terms don’t pan out for Trump, don’t expect there to be a 2020. He’s not going to battle the swamp without Senate and House. Honestly, people are beyond stupid and it’s not just the Dims.

  4. This is a non-event, how this Special Election got everyone so hyped up is beyond me. The sitting candidate was forced out due to a serious scandal, this is going to GREATLY suppress the turnout of the sitting member’s party PERIOD. There’s nothing surprising about the total votes for Lamb – last time the Dems contested the district was 2012 and the candidate in 2012 picked up about 10,000 more votes than Lamb will.

    Saccone was tracking to lose by about 5% – Trump stumping brought it back to a coin flip. The district loves Trump but not the GOP. (who can blame them?)

      This was not a non-event. If trump voters continue to vote Democrat in Nov 2018 and throw Congress and Senate to the Democrats, there will be no Trump in 2020.

I’m reminded of the joke where the soccer or hockey player goes to the wrong half of the field or rink and scores one in the net for the opposing team. I’m frankly beyond disgusted because Trump won this district with the local newspaper against him. This time, the newspaper endorsed Saccone. People have gone back to stupid again. Thankless lot. Trump bringing steel against backlash jobs back and this is what his voters do.

However, this old, odd, white dude should have been TROUNCED by the highly educated, young, good looking military veteran Dem. candidate. Succks to be a Democrap even worse than being a GOPe.

    Not sure who will win or lose the vote count. Dims have lost though. There is no Blue Wave, not even Blue Mist in this case. Dims +50K registered voters and the delta appears less than 500. Not a win really. The dims have expended a lot of money, energy and emotion in these kinds of races and for what? A few hundred vote win. They’ll crow about it to be sure. But no one will be worried about it in a week. And deep down the reality will set in at how hollow a dim victory would be. Please pass the popcorn! And if Saccone speaks it out…add more butter!

      Rob, when I read your comment a couple days ago, I thought it was a bit strong. Then I listened to the Trump rally in PA. About 100 times he said “we need to put Republicans in Congress AND the DemonRats are not going to vote for MAGA agenda”.

      Looking at your comments now, I think you are spot on. Sad times… We have idiots that vote D for this crap AND supposed Trump supporters that do nothing to get the vote out.

      I live in the most corrupt area of the world (Crook County, Illinois). We have our primary vote March 20. The Demonrat ballot is like the list of “who’s who in criminal politics” and the Republicans didn’t even run candidate in 90% of the races. Plus the Rep committee backs Bruce Rauner??? the worst Governer in the history of civilization. What a mess…

    The GOP needs to embrace Unions not push for Right to Work. I support Right to Work but man, you can’t say that! We need to steal Democrat voters and the Unions were burned by the Democrat Party so it should be a no-brainer to scoop them up. Push for jobs including Union jobs.

    The Right to Work issue is more of a problem with State Union Workers who are typically unfunded in their pensions and retirement. The taxpayers are getting pounded at the State level to pay for all those workers because the State was negligent in not properly funding things. It is the same incompetence that caused all the trade deficits. The Unions made demands of the State and the State caved and then mismanaged the finances. Most states fund the retirement of State Union workers from the general fund and did not allocate funds properly. No private sector would do such a thing. Pensions and retirement plans must be financially funded and guaranteed. You can’t just use the general fund. My state is in an enormous deficit of epic proportions as a result.

      Good question. The Republicans need to track Connor Lamb’s performance, if he wins,and use it as a campaign issue if he proves to NOT vote like a Blue-Dog Democrat.

      Yet, Connor Lamb’s victory also needs to serve a lesson relearned for the Republicans. As a wise Republican once stated, there are national issues and local issues. Republicans have to realize that winning house elections requires allot of work, relevant candidates and better understanding of local issues. They were missing 2 of 3 ingredients in this special election, the candidate and local issue understanding. Trump can give you some bounce but in areas where he won due to cross-over voting vs a poor candidate that bounce may NOT win the day.

The fact a single visit by Trump was able to pull this election into a near draw is telling because it required allot of cross-over votes to get there. Yet, the Republican Party needs to get the message about better, more contemporary candidates who understand local issues to stand a better chance in some of these types of races. The party needs to better understand how to do better in the cross-over vote.

        Look at it this way going forward. The Republican ran supporting Trump. The Democrat ran supporting Trump all the while dissing Pelosi. Statistically, Trump garnered about 100% of the vote, while the two candidates split the vote 50/50. When the Democrats wake up to this, their heads will explode! The Republicans simply have to vet their candidates better in order to win outright. If they do that, they may be able to stay in power for 200 years, because the way to win as a Democrat is to support Trump.

There are just not that many Puerto Ricans in NJ to account for the number of non-English speakers. If they were citizens, they would have to learn English.

      If this lawsuit goes through, it will open up a lot of illegal votes. Look at California’s popular vote. The difference between Hillary and PDJT almost equals the difference in the national popular vote. PDJT was always correct that the difference in the popular vote was illegal aliens voting. Many of those states, including California, refused to turn over their voter rolls.

    The lesson that the GOP better learn, is that if you aren’t willing to fight and do the work necessary for every single vote, you will continue to lose local elections.

Like it or not, most people only pay attention to politics whenever there is an election. The person saying all the correct things at the time and working the hardest for your vote, will win every local election.

    If it wasn’t for President Trump’s visit last week, this probably would have been a blowout for Lamb. Saccone didn’t put in the work necessary to win, and at times he didn’t seem to even have answers for some issues. He seemed unprepared, and at times it seemed as though he was just winging it. The GOP better be more prepared and ready for a battle next November.

      Same with Moore here in Alabama. A couple tweets and such isn’t campaigning. Those who run need to go all in, so does the RNC and voters.

      Whoever wins the R primary needs to be voted for and supported, period.

      The Democrat who ran on Trump’s agenda won because enough people fell for his BS. As soon as he reaches DC, he will be Pelosi’s puppet. Most people just don’t care about politics and only pay attention whenever there is an election.

      The media conveniently ignores the fact that both candidates were running on President Trump’s agenda. It didn’t fit their narrative.

      none other, fine. But when they get to DC they are Democrats, they caucus with the Dems, and they generally vote with the Dems. They can give the Dems a killer majority. How they got there tends to fade from their view once they have been elected.

        I beleve the low energy candidate Saccone, who was said by some to have phoned it in rather than actively pursuing his candidacy, cost himself the election. If he’d been a really good, committed, active candidate, he’s have won the way PDJT, another really good, committed, highly active candidate did. PDJT gave him the blueprint, showed him the way (for many, many months!). Saccone appeared to slouch through the process…

    Lamb the Scam wins because Democrats ALWAYS win close elections. They won’t accept it otherwise. Remember Al Franken’s first election? They counted until he won, then stopped. Same thing happened in Washington State between Christine Gregoire and her opponent (can’t remember his name). Every time he won, they recounted. They recounted until she was ahead, then they stopped. This is how it works. If Republicans want to win, they have to win. All Democrats have to do is get close. Lamb ran on POTUS’s platform and stupid voters believed him. What a joke! You will never go broke underestimating the stupidity of American voters. What strikes me is that for all POTUS has done for unions, the union leaders came out for Lamb who will be one of the votes to impeach him. Isn’t this always the way? B ut thank you to the Pennsylvanians who did show up and tried to keep our country great.

  35. Here we go , just found this over at Breitbart..Allegheny already counted, this is good, Westmoreland not counted, this is better. They know how many votes they need to find in GOP counties:

    Allegheny County’s absentee ballots are included in that count, but the absentee ballots in the three other counties in the district have yet to be counted: 1,195 in Washington County, 1,808 in Westmoreland County, and 203 in Greene County, for a total of 3,204 absentee ballots yet to be counted.

    To pull out the victory, Saccone will need to get a little over 60 percent of these ballots.

    The absentee ballots will be counted and reported in these three counties between 11:15 p.m. eastern and an undetermined time on Wednesday morning.

      Washington County absentee ballots in as of this morning according to County elections site. Final count for these ballots: Lamb, 609; Saccone, 547. Democrat county commissioner reported this in the local paper. Local paper also reported that as of this a.m. the only ballots that weren’t counted yet were 203 from Greene County. All counties overall, though – but for Allegheny – went for Saccone over Lamb. Hard to offset the lib vote in Allegheny County. IMO, the Repubs ran a joke of a campaign here. I don’t have a television, so from my perspective the extent of the Repub campaign on this was to bombard people with robocalls. I got at least 3-robocalls a day for the two weeks leading up to the election. Irritated the sh*%#t out of me (that and all the robo-polls, which I didn’t answer). Only robocall I appreciated was the one made by VSGPDJT himself; that one mattered. Except for that one, the robocalls alone would have made me sit out this election. Any campaign that relies on pissing off the base through relentless robocalls is NOT a campaign well run. I only voted for Saccone to help VSGPDJT and his MAGA efforts. Sadly, doesn’t seem to have been enough to offset the fraud and dunderheaded straight-ticket Dem voters in these parts. I also blame the idiot Repub Tim Murphy who vacated his seat because of moral turpitude. GOPe is an albatross around the neck of MAGA.

            This is no longer democrat verses republican it is America First against globalists. Republicans that are candidates need to be America First and any democrat running on that is a fraught because they work against Trump.

    What people sometimes forget is that it is incredibly easy for dems to pull off election fraud. Look at a map of the 2016 election on a county by county basis and you will see that Trump won 90+% of the counties. For republicans to steel elections they would have to influence the vote in 90% of the geography. For Democrats, they only have to influence 10%. When things get broken down even further (city/borough/township), it gets even more onesided. The number of vote rigging required for Republicans to pull the same thing off is well over 10:1 and likely 20:1. This is why the dems cheat and steel elections. Its easy when your base is a bunch of collectivist marxist morons huddled around a city.
