Meet Conor Lamb, the Democrat looking to nab a seat in Trump country

Meet Conor Lamb, the Democrat looking to nab a seat in Trump country.

If Lamb wins, he could become one of the most conservative Democrats in office.

What he stands for

On the campaign trail

Lamb fundraising prowess has helped him maintain a competitive edge.

He has raised nearly $3.3 million during the first two months of the year. By contrast, Lamb’s opponent, Rick Saccone has raised $917,892 during the same time period. Outside groups have invested $1.7 million so far into Lamb’s campaign - Saccone has raised nearly $10.3 million in super PACs and outside groups.

A poll conducted by Monmouth University show the race as incredibly close.

“The impact would be profound. I promise if you if he wins you’re going to see probably another half a dozen Republicans say they’re not running again,” Biden told the crowd of supporters.

Still, he faces tough math to claim a win.

His opponent

Rick Saccone, the 60-year-old four-term Pennsylvania state representative comes with decades of experience — a point he makes regularly. He served in the United States Air Force as a special agent and is a former diplomatic representative in North Korea during President George W. Bush's adminsitration.

President Trump, who recently agreed to meet with the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, rallied outside of Pittsburgh Saturday for Saccone.

Trump also had a few choice words about Lamb.

“And Conor lamb, lamb the sham, lamb the sham, he's trying to act like a Republican so he gets — he won't give me one vote. I don't know him. Looks like a nice guy. I hear he's nice looking,” Trump said.

Trump accused Lamb of trying to “act like a Republican.”

The president even touted how if he met Lamb, Saccone might be angry.

"I might like him. And then Rick is going to be very angry at me,” Trump said.
