He couldn't leave without giving voters a preview to his reelection campaign for 2020. To back that up, Lamb opposes sweeping gun restrictions, endorses Trump's new steel tariffs, avoids attacking the president, and tells voters he wouldn't back Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California for speaker if Democrats won a House majority.

Trump acknowledged those dynamics, noting talk of Lamb as a handsome candidate.

Saccone has tried at times to make the race about experience, touting his four decades in the public and private sector, from an Air Force career and stint in North Korea to his current job as a college professor. But he scrapped his prepared remarks on Saccone, improvising and at one point handing the microphone to Saccone, too.

Republican congressional candidate Rick Saccone speaks during a campaign event on February 2, 2018, in Bethel Park, Pa. He'll never, never disappoint you, " Trump said. "But for getting your votes, he's talking about how much he likes tariffs, which is my baby".

But Lamb's surprisingly strong performance - polls show him tied or within the margin of error against Saccone - has boiled down to Trump's polarizing presidency, according to Democratic Congressman Michael Doyle.

"Lamb is a candidate who has a background, really, out of central casting - military service, prosecutor, young, energetic", said Mike DeVanney, a GOP consultant based in Pittsburgh.

It's not clear whether Trump's presence on the campaign trail three days before the race will boost turnout, but Saccone was hoping it would. "I think they wanna do something".

President Donald Trump has again called for enacting the death penalty for drug dealers during a rally meant to bolster a struggling GOP candidate for a US House seat.

"I think the one thing that has put this race in play is that it is a heavily unionized district", said Mukis.

However, he did reportedly state: "I don't know if this country's ready for it".

As such, he's likely to take on a coaching role from next season - discussions are ongoing but "it's been kind of sorted out". The former England global came through the ranks at West Ham before securing a £3.5m move to Tottenham in 2004.


He said those convicted of killing just one person in shootings and stabbings at times face the death penalty or life in prison without parole.

'You kill 5,000 people with drugs, because you're smuggling them in and you're making a lot of money, and people are dying and they don't even do anything, ' he continued.

"That's why we have a problem, folks". It will be a rough night for Donald Trump because the women won't come out.' We got 52 percent, right? 52. I don't know if that's unpopular. "We can't just keep setting up blue-ribbon committees with your wife and your wife and your husband, and they meet and they have a meal and they talk, talk talk talk, two hours later, then they write a report".

In January, Democratic Representative Patrick Kennedy, a member of Trump's commission, stated the president's work on the drug crisis has been a "charade". Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Sen.

'I'd love to beat Oprah.

"Here's the problem: As soon as he gets in, he's not going to vote for us", Trump also said of Lamb.

Trump also touted his role in South Korea's hosting of the Winter Olympics, claiming credit for temporarily reducing the nuclear threat posed by North Korea. "Might as well say it.It's a little hard to sell tickets when you think you're going to be nuked", the president said.

He also spoke about his recent revelation that he had agreed to meet with Kim Jong Un, before hitting out at his predecessors who had failed to organise it before now.

Ciccarone said there is also concern that the laws could ensnare low-level drug dealers, many of whom do not know that their products contain lethal amounts of opioids and some of whom are battling addiction.
