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.

        In our part of PA, it’s a hybrid. Vote on a paper scantron, and the machines tally and report it. At the end of the night, each precinct does a vote count verification by hand. So you have potential error for bad dot filling, people who did provisional ballots, etc. Those get sent to an elections official. It’s all very manual. If I could improve anything, there should be a paper receipt given to the voter with results of what the machine thought you did, for instant verification.

  11. The problem is this Lamb guy is going to be a Pelosi yes-man from day 1. Too many voters still believe the rhetoric and the “promises” despite it being a load of bull designed to get elected. Pelosi may be senile, but she does not abide dissent. The Dems vote as a bloc for their communist agenda every. single. time.

      It is not an apple to apple comparison! Had Lamb ran on HRC agenda, he would have got destroyed. That is the point you ne to remember. The majority of Democrats run to the far left not the middle. In districts our President won, that will devastate them. Keep that in mind.

      The talking heads are hammering this all night, and it shows how shallow their thinking is. Trump is not on the ballot, therefore there are no coattails to drag anyone anywhere. All these special elections really show is that Trump being on the ballot was the key ingredient missing today and every other day. But talking heads will talk, incessantly 24/7/365, and say nothing.

      Reagan whipped Carter in 1980 and annihilated Mondale in 1984, and in that latter butt-whoopin he won 49 states with 525 electors and a massive 58.8% of the total popular vote ( and in 30 states he took over 60% ). Yet he never once won that damn communist House of Representatives, and squeaked by with narrow wins in the Senate the same as Trump ( 53 seats ) but only during the first three cycles 1980/1982/1984.

      Besides the Enemedia acting as a fifth column for the (D)ummycrats, we also have the same persistent problem of a non-strategic and barely tactical Congressional campaign, same as back then during Reagan. They collect lots of donations, accumulate massive pots of cash but apparently only spend it on guaranteed winners and ruling class approved (R)epublicrats. It is time to ask the question whether that Romneyette at RNC really is competent at her job ( should have been Sarah Palin IMHO ). Hopefully this will light a fire under her and Kellyanne’s butts to get motivated now ( however this should have started immediately on November 8, 2016 ).

        One remaining mystery out there is just how a Romney wound up as RNC chair. Trump interviews Mittens for SoS, says thanks but no thanks and sends him on his merry way with a long disappointed face, yet the next thing we know his niece is in charge of the national (R) party. I still don’t see what he or the party gained from that exhibition.

        I was rooting for Sarah Palin to get the gig because she formed SaraPac, honed the skills of identifying local candidates during the TEA party revolution, and was an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump since day one.

        I also wanted her because if she were made boss at the RNC it would be much the same effect as Trump going to Washington – they would require suicide nets around all the RNC headquarters to catch the crazed globalists as they leaped from their plush offices rather than report to a pro-American. ( the nets are completely optional )

        Maybe there is a possible compromise with a joint leadership arrangement, Sarah in charge of candidate recruitment and ground game, and the Romneyette in charge of the money bags. Bring in Kellyanne to handle polling and then there is a team effort covering all constituents. The problem right now is that I don’t see the Romneyette outreach to the grassroots TEA party and other deplorables.

            Yeah well, I’ll accept she is not her Uncle, but not that she delivered Michigan. Did she also deliver PA, WI, and OH? Trump delivered all those States by flying in on Trump Force I over and over again, and addressing (R)epublicrat 3rd rail issues like trade, tariffs, coal and auto they had abandoned. People in the Upper Pen have always been solid and dependably pro-American with or without a Romney around, and have been desperate for years for someone like Trump to come along and drag the lower trolls back to reality, and it took a blue collar billionaire to do just that. One who embraced those abandoned issues.

            Before everyone starts taking or distributing credit for Trump’s victory ( not you specifically Sandra ) we need to know the truths behind some unknowns. Like just for example, just who behind the scenes when the Access Hollywood tape dropped were calling for pressing on, and who said to drop out. We’re getting some clues. Priebus said go, Bannon said stay. What did Rona say? That is directly pertinent to how much she actually helped. In fact I wish there were a list of what everyone said about that, including his family members like Ivanka and Jared ( I have no doubt his sons said to continue ).

            Also, where did Rona ever stand on tariffs and trade in the first place before Trump won? Is she actually 100% opposite her despicable Uncle? If you know the answer let us know ( I don’t know really ) because that would be a great re-assuring fact. Finally, I have the same question about her pre-Trump views on Illegal Aliens/Amnesty and of course firearms. It’s certainly possible she is an atypical anti-GOPe Romney, it happens from time to time in families, but I need proof of what they said pre-Trump because it sure is easy to bask in the limelight of a winner. There is far too much at stake here, not just the Trump administration, but the nation itself.

            I do wish Rona would personally get Sarah onboard and form a team effort. Next time she comments here I am gonna ask her to contact Rona to offer to help with recruitment and the ground game. It really is all hands on deck.

    This is the reality

    Baris said he thinks Lamb wins by 2-4 points without Trump helping. I think it’s more like 6 points (to be fair to Baris, he said at least that margin. Could be more).

    This race was going all to Lamb towards the end, but Trump turned it with the rally and the GOP blitz at the end helped stem the tide.

    That said, we look likely to lose and lessons must be learned.

    The district is competitive and is about +50K Dem registration. Before Time Murphy, the last Congressman was a Dem.

    It’s a traditional Reagan Democrat district. If you run the right race, you can win as a Dem.

    Particularly if you have no voting record and are a good candidate.

    No shocks here. Just sad we look to have lost, barely.

    But Team Trump turned this sharply at the end. It could have been an utter embarrassment, and it is not.

        It’s very arduous fighting the daily and slick professional propaganda unless ground troops are mobilized every day to fight mass media. One strategy is to tell people they are not the experts on 3D chess, to close their ears off 100% of whatever the media or the Democrat candidates say – and reward President Trump for his sacrefice and amazing results by voting whoever he picks. Postcards of thank you are no linger enough, If they voted Trump in 2016,then thank him with a show of force by voting his pick for November 2018. We’ve always known that if you don’t thank God for his blessings it will be sign of ungratefulness and taken away. Same goes for thanking President Trump. Show you are grateful and reward him which he gets so little of these days by voting in Nov 2018 for his candidate – the aggregate of which will prevent Mueller and threats of impeachment.

    Tonight’s race in PA reminds me of a stock trading axiom. There are three outcomes to any trade, and contrary to what many initially think 2 of the three are winners.

    Make money
    Lose money
    “Push” – neither of the above.

    If tonight is a “push” in terms of margin of victory, it is a winner for PDJT and the GOP.

    It is the dims who desperately needed a convincing win, not PDJT,…and this after months of breathless, hopeful pining for a “blue wave in Texas”.

    All PDJT needed to do in this election…which will be re-run in Nov….is “push”, nevermind winning outright.

    Even if the dim winds up winning, tonight was a win for the GOP, and an outright loss for the “bluw wave” narrative.

    That said, we’ll keep hearing about “blue wave” BS all the way into Nov. Just remember, it’s all hot air….just like “blue wave Texas”.

      What Team Trump showed tonight was they can still “close” in a competitive district.

      That should be a big boost to their confidence.

      This race was botched by Saccone and the GOP from the get-go. For it to get so close at the end, and to reverse Lamb’s momentum so close to the end, is a very good sign.

      People who don’t know the district won’t grasp all of this. But if you know the district much, and looked at the flow of the race, you will know what I mean.

      The biggest lesson I take from all of this is that you must have a good candidate. The Dems did, the GOP did not.

      As David Brody said in a tweet above, candidates matter. Particularly in competitive districts like PA18.

      This is why Dems are running military/intelligence people in competitive House districts in the midterms. They know. And it’s time for the GOP to step up its game.

        There were some dynamics at play here. I’m from the district. First, Murphy left disgraced and that hurt the Republican brand.Badly… Murphy always ran and was a moderate in a D (50,000) district. Second, the confere appointment of a Saccone ( there were a total of 3 including Saccone for Murphy’s seat) left two camps, the westmoreland county candidate and Allegheny county candidate butt hurt. At least one candidate virtually gave zero support to Saccone. That non support alone probably cost Saccone 1,000 votes. Three, Saccone is a good guy but lacks charisma and honestly appeal to some Conservative democrats and moderate republicans. This is zero reflection of Trump, who is loved here. The real blame is the lack of continuity in the republican leadership in this district and state. Plus individuals who put person before party. Local politics folks, that’s it in a nut shell. Don’t lose heart, and certainly don’t look at this as some blue trend. It’s not. The stars never aligned on this one. We need Trump like candidates to emerge and they will.

    I’ve been a staunch supporter of Donald Trump since I attended his Mobile rally in Aug ’15, and I’m never going anywhere.

    That said, he COULD have waited a few days to fire Rex Tillerson, and he COULD have had the courtesy to accept his resignation in person.

      I had hoped for 200 from the last 2 pcts in Westmoreland. This is very good. We got 300 instead! At 55% of red counties absentee left, Saccone could at least tie.

    579 vote difference with absentees left to count. Considering the margin on absentees in Allegheny about +800 for Lamb, this should deliver a +100-200 vote win for Saccone.

      Succone needs 60% of the absentee ballot vote in the red counties remaining. Lamb got 62% in Allegheny County, so yah, doable.

      Yep.

      The Dems are already fielding Veteran/Intelligence candidates in competitive districts for the midterms. People like Lamb.

      If we do not do the same, and get the right candidates, we will lose the House.

      But the good news is that people want our vision. They want veterans, they want MAGA.

      We just can’t let them Dems scam them into thinking the Dems will deliver it, rather than the GOP.

      This is Lamb’s candidacy in a nutshell, the Dem “fake conservative” campaign.

      And the local chapters, too.

      However, I’m not sure we can count on that.

      More of a Grassroots effort is needed I think, much like the Pres. Election where the state and local R. Party did not help, so the people took the reigns.

      It was regular people who had the idea to volunteer to drive the Amish to the polls, for instance, not the state or local R goons.

    In other words, Saccone won the Election Day vote. Without the dumping of the Alleghany County absentees before 100% of precincts reported, Saccone would be ahead.

      Yes, still a chance. But maybe not a great chance. Looks like Lamb the favorite at the moment.

          Let’s reflect a moment. This special election, in a district which may not even be a district in November, is a nailbiter for sure. Can’t argue that. How about expanding our thinking. A lot of attention is being paid.. This may not be a bad thing, in fact, it may be a ‘beautiful’ thing, the ‘greatest’ thing. Have we not remembered all those ‘traps’ President Trump and his Patriots have set for the enemy and each and every trap he set the enemy merrily jumped into? Yep, the PA 18th was a trap. A beautiful trap, so expertly set. This trap set historical records, Our VSG POTUS Donald J. Trump just trapped the most enemies of any U.S. President in history. MSNBC is an insane asylum.

    Obama team is working hard to redistrict as many states they can do and want to run small small races at local and state level. Just a 2-3% change by fake msm makes the difference. Everyone is not politically savvy like us and there are tons of folks who follow news on fake msm just for few mins and vote.

    So there is a reported estimate of 3900 total absentee ballots yet to be counted. If accurate, Saccone would need 57.5% of the absentee ballots to win. Considering they are all from Republican leaning counties, that is very doable. I will still predict a 100+ vote count win for Saccone.

    While we are watching one of 535 congressional districts in the country in S.W. Pa. (Green county, wrasslin kids) and it went to overtime we run and get us a snack before overtime starts. We finding there’s a much bigger game being played. Bigger than the game in S.W. Pa. Okay, small game: score tied, overtime; Big game, opposition coaches showed themselves in public, we see the opposition players.

    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.
