November’s mid-term polls: Test election held for Pennsylvania seat.
A Democrat and a Republican are neck-and-neck in the Pennsylvania special House election seen as a test before November’s mid-term polls.
The solidly Republican 18th congressional district race pits Democrat Conor Lamb against Republican lawmaker Rick Saccone.
Both are competing to replace Tim Murphy, who resigned last October.
But celebrations will be short-lived since the winner will start campaigning for a seat in a different district.
As a result of new district boundaries imposed by the state Supreme Court in January, the 18th district is going to be divided into four distinct districts in November’s poll.
