Pennsylvania special House election pits Conor Lamb against Rick Saccone

Pennsylvania special House election pits Conor Lamb against Rick Saccone

Democrats had hoped to stir up enough enthusiasm in the special election – especially among union members – to increase voter turnout and change the party representing a district that has recently been red.

“The one fact that has remained the same this year – whether Democrats have won or lost [recent special elections] – is Democrats are doing better in terms of turnout and enthusiasm,” Kevan Yenerall, a social sciences professor at Clarion University, told Fox News.

Saccone is more known for his religious conservatism as opposed to Murphy, who is a more mainstream Republican, Robert Speel, an associate professor of political science at Pennsylvania State University in Erie, told Fox News.

Former Vice President Joe Biden campaigned for Lamb a week ahead of the election, comparing the candidate to his late son Beau and praising him for his dedication to unions.

“Our steelworkers here can compete with anybody in the world without any problems as long as the playing field is level, but the playing field has been slanted,” Saccone told Fox News.
