GOP looks to avoid PA upset


Pictured: GOP state Rep. Rick Saccone

ㅤ”President Trump will touch down in Pennsylvania on Thursday, where he’ll make an appearance in the Pittsburgh-area district that’s home to the next high-profile special House election.
ㅤTrump is scheduled to give a speech at a local manufacturing plant — not to hold a campaign event for GOP state Rep. Rick Saccone, who is running in the March 13 special election and is expected to be in the audience.
ㅤBut Trump’s appearance in the district, coupled with reports that Vice President Pence will travel to the district in the coming weeks, underscores the heavy investments Republicans are making to prevent Democrats from pulling off another special election upset.”
