The Congressional Leadership Fund, a political action committee aligned with House Speaker Paul Ryan, at one point deviated from its Pelosi-bashing scripts to send Democratic voters mailers praising Lamb for opposing new gun restrictions.

In a story that analyzes the history of the 18 District as well as both candidates, National Review writer Jay Cost says voters head to the polls in a race that remains a toss-up and a possible Democratic win.

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

That 20-point margin Trump won the district by in 2016 gives us a baseline of Trump support in the district. "The NRA is honored to endorse Rick Saccone...[and] encourages all Pennsylvania gun-owners, hunters and sportsmen to vote for Rick Saccone in the March 13, 2018 Special Election".

Polls will be open Tuesday from 7 a.m.to 8 p.m.

Tuesday's victor will face a re-election test in just eight months and a redistricting battle all-but ensures the district is likely to be redrawn by then.

The eyes of Capitol Hill and much of the politically active nation will be watching. Throughout the campaign, Saccone and his allies emphasized the GOP tax cuts the president championed. Other recent visitors include the vice president, the president's eldest son, the president's daughter and the president's chief counselor. "A lot of those issues, I think, we can get into later", the young politician replied.

Democratic voter Brian Konick supported Trump in 2016.

THE BLAME GAME: If Republicans lose tonight, they will call Saccone a poor candidate who couldn't fundraise and didn't define himself early enough. Many of them have a hatred for our country.

The most money spent on a special House race - or any House race - was $55 million past year in suburban Atlanta, in Democrats' failed effort to take a GOP-held seat. The seat has been in Republican hands for the last 15 years.

After voting Tuesday in Allegheny County, Saccone downplayed the significance of the unusually close race. "And there are people who love him, and they'll turn out". "When there's an open seat, Democrats always try to pour money into it".

A 68-year-old retired engineer who described himself as a "John Kasich-Daddy Bush Republican", Bruce Bancroft said he always voted for Murphy, but finds Saccone too strident for the district and an already acrimonious Congress.

Despite the Trump administration's efforts to help the coal industry, mines keep closing. The consistent fundraising deficit has left him with limited resources to air the message he delivers one-on-one: His four decades of experience in the private sector, global business and now the legislature make voters' choice a no-brainer.

Lamb has a run as a moderate with considerable union backing. "I'm saying that the president is pushing forward on things that we know have broad-based support and that we can immediately get done, while at the same time we're looking at the best way forward to push these other things through", she said.

He did it as national Republican groups filled airwaves and social media with depictions of the first-time candidate as little more than a lemming for Nancy Pelosi - the California Democrat, House minority leader. And most of all, he has claimed not to support Nancy Pelosi. Trump had appeared at a rally for Saccone over the weekend.

Taxes: Backed the GOP tax bill.

And he embraces unions, highlighting Saccone's anti-labor record at the statehouse - a noticeable deviation from Murphy's status as a union-friendly Republican. The AFL-CIO counts 87,000 votes from union households - around a fifth of the electorate.

Saccone, a 60-year-old state lawmaker, has struggled with an electorate that favored Trump by almost 20 percentage points just 16 months ago.

"I'll tell you some more - my wife and I saw it again today: They have a hatred for God", Saccone said.
