Report: Trump Jr. to join Saccone in 18th District on eve of special election
Two days after President Trump’s rally in Moon to campaign for Republican U.S. House candidate Rick Saccone, Donald Trump Jr. will be helping the cause , according to Tribune-Review news partner WPXI.
The president’s oldest son will join Saccone on the campaign trail on the eve of an unexpectedly close special election against Democrat Conor Lamb .
Voters in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District will decide Tuesday whether Saccone or Lamb will fill the vacancy left by former Rep. Tim Murphy, who resigned in October after the public disclosure of an extramarital affair.
Saccone and Trump Jr. will tour Sarris Candies in Canonsburg and visit the Blaine Hill Volunteer Fire Department in Elizabeth Township, WPXI reported.
Murphy had a strong hold on the 18th District seat for more than a decade, but recent polls show the race is a toss-up.
The district spans southern Allegheny County and parts of Greene, Washington and Westmoreland counties.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday.
