    Conor’s entire $3.2 MM war chest is not half of the $7 MM the super pacs are pouring in to the race to buy untruthful ads against Conor. The most disgusting and misleading ad is the one claiming it was conor’s fault that evil criminals got light jail sentences. those of us who passed 6th grade know it is judges who sentence criminals, not prosecutors.

    There are THREE people on the ballot. The Third-Party Candidate is Libertarian, Drew Gray Miller.

      Miller’s a loser…

      Gretchen, stop trying to make “fetch” happen. It’s not going to happen!

    Cook Political Report just moved PA-18 from “Leans Republican” to “Toss Up”. This is a district that Trump won by 20 points with millions being spent by outside groups to support Saccone. My favorite mailer was the one that declared “a vote for Saccone is a vote to stop Hillary” who is apparently secretly in control of the country or something.

    Unless the polling is way off and Saccone takes this by at least 10 points, any way you cut it, this looks awful for Republicans.
