Death penalty for drug dealers? Count Trump in

  • Trump speaks at western Pennsylvania campaign rally

Feeling bullish after big wins in other special elections past year and enjoying a groundswell of grassroots activism these days, Democrats are hoping a win in this ruby red district will not only make it easier for them to take back the House in November, but also send a message that their candidates can play in any part of the country.

President Donald Trump traveled to Pennsylvania Saturday to help campaign for Congressional Candidate Rick Saccone. The president is set to speak in an airplane hangar at Pittsburgh International Airport, in Moon Township, in an event starting at 7 p.m. ET. The Democrats - for the most part - can thank Trump for these wins. Aides had considered holding a signing ceremony for the tariffs during his visit. By comparison, almost half of the total votes cast in the district in 2016, came from precincts where president Trump won by over 30 percentage points.

"What Trump is doing is good for the country", she said, "and Rick's going to support everything he's doing". "Rick is a great guy". And in a district that, though he won by 20 points in 2016, is now a swing district?

And on Tuesday, Lamb, a former Marine and federal prosecutor, might become the first Democrat to win this district in 15 years.

In contrast, Lamb has raised over $3 million directly and has largely operated without the support of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which some operatives admit could have been a liability for him.

Saccone has tried at times to make the race about experience, touting his four decades in the public and private sector, from an Air Force career and stint in North Korea to his current job as a college professor.

Mr Trump also urged a crackdown on sanctuary cities and vowed to toughen enforcement at United States borders and to root out members of MS-13, a criminal gang. "We've got two days left". We've had Ivanka. What does the other side have?

While Lamb has intentionally kept the national party at arm's length, he welcomed Vice President Joe Biden into the district last week, who compared Lamb's call to serve to his own late son's, Beau. Neither Lamb nor Saccone has made the ongoing Russian Federation investigation bedeviling Trump part of his pitch, but the paper insisted the country must not "dive into so great a distraction".

He said it was crucial for Republicans to muster forces to turn back a strong Democratic drive to win one or both houses of the US Congress in November midterm elections.

The rally's highlights therefore had little to do with the GOP candidate who Trump was there to endorse, or even much to do with Trump's political agenda.

Although Saccone has not proven to be a strong fundraiser (FiveThirtyEight claims he has raised nearly $920,000 for the race as compared to Lamb's $3.9 million), he has received over $10 million from Republican groups to prop up his campaign.

President Trump has recently made comments supporting the death penalty for drug dealers and while many did not take them seriously, it appears they should have.
