Pa. voters cast ballots for Lamb, Saccone in House district ready to be dismantled

Pa. voters cast ballots for Lamb, Saccone in House district ready to be dismantled

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court last year struck down the boundaries of the state's 18th congressional district -- where voters decide Tuesday between Republican Rick Saccone or Democrat Conor Lamb – saying the boundaries were unconstitutionally gerrymandered to benefit Republicans.

But the race has tightened in the closing weeks with ten of millions of dollars and marquee names like President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden coming to the southwestern Pennsylvania district to get their voters to the polls.

Washington Democrats, including the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, have downplayed their investment in the race, as Republicans continue to argue that Lamb, if elected, would vote with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, despite what he might say.

The most money spent on a special House race -- or any House race -- was $55 million last year in suburban Atlanta, in Democrats' failed effort to take a GOP-held seat.

“The problem is, they go to D.C. and the first thing they do is fall in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi and (Senate Minority Leader) Chuck Schumer,” Donald Trump Jr. said Tuesday, one day after campaigning for Saccone.
