Voters must support GOP in Pittsburgh-area House race

Trump, whose campaign slogan in 2016 was "Make America Great Again", indicated he would make a similar argument for his own re-election bid in 2020, and he previewed that campaign slogan: "Keep America Great (exclamation point)".

Polls show a tight race between Saccone and Democratic candidate Conor Lamb who has said he doesn't agree with the more liberal wing of his party on many issues. But the Democrats have generally gone along with the pretense of action, praising Trump's declaration of a 90-day "national emergency" even though it was backed by little new funding.

"It's just fantastic that both people are running for a [district] that's going to last for a few months and then they've got to run again and not even against each other", Rep. Remember? 'Women won't like Donald Trump.' I said, have I really had that kind of a problem? I don't want to meet him. Democrats hope to pick up this typically Republican held seat in order to build momentum ahead of the 2018 mid-terms.

Utah's 3rd district, vacated by Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who now works at Fox News, was won by Republican Rep. John Curtis in November. He also avoids criticizing Trump.

The president made the argument that his supporters - in what both he and political observers are calling "Trump Country" - should vote for Republicans this year in order to prevent the top Democrat in the House, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., from regaining the speaker's gavel and possibly seeking to impeach him.

"I think people appreciate what he's done", said White.

"The president comes in for his second visit, the vice president has been here, Ivanka's been here, cabinet secretaries have been here, 10 kitchen sinks has been thrown here, $15 million has been spent here, and that Marine (Lamb) is still standing", Democratic Rep. Mike Doyle told Politico.

He rehashed his frequent criticism of so-called sanctuary cities and called on Congress to deny federal funding to localities that do not provide the level of cooperation sought by the Justice Department and agents of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Instead, one of the top headlines was "Trump Slams NBC's Chuck Todd at Rally: 'Sleepy-Eyed Son of a Bitch'". Critics said other countries will retaliate with tariffs of their own on American products, increasing prices worldwide. He added that Lamb's party leadership opposes his protectionist policy. "And if Lamb is able to win this race, it's partly gonna be because labor unions organized and turned their members out who voted overwhelmingly for him".

When the cameras were invited to a White House meeting with Trump and bipartisan lawmakers a few weeks ago, Trump seemed so open to gun-control proposals that he accused one of the most pro-gun-control Republicans in the Senate, Patrick J. Toomey (Pa.), of being afraid of the NRA because Toomey's universal background check bill from 2013 also didn't raise the age limit for buying assault rifles.

The special election is to replace Republican Rep. Tim Murphy, who resigned past year.

The White House also recognizes the threat of losing a seat Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA) won easily for years until an embarrassing sex scandal forced him from office. Even some Republicans admit that Lamb, who is also a veteran, is a better candidate.

"He has a tough race", Trump acknowledged to thousands at a raucous rally in Moon Township. Rick will help me a lot.

Holding court in front of an adoring and energized crowd, Trump went off script.

"If President Trump is in your corner", he said, "how can you lose?"
