Laura Bennett Steve intent here it's a 7:12 problems as 7 o'clock. And didn't Pennsylvania we have a what's. A Trace it's too close to call between a Democrat challenging a Republican in a state that. In the presidential election by twenty points went for president trump but this is morning Fox News radio Jared Halpern. From Capitol Hill lieutenant looks like at their recent changes coming in congress can mourned here at night to have you with us. Get to be what you're yet dictated this district at the present moment twenty points personal data to the human target. Much closer and it at a Pennsylvania. But in this debate. Your point. Can't land the Democrat in the race very young 33 former prosecutor former marine. It's being. That beatable they at least in the street campaign is declared victory he has not by. A few hundred point it looks like they're gonna count absentees there may be a recount mechanism but the idea that this race leading competitive. Considering that two years ago that congressional district way to the president or twenty point. Really speaks to hiding inherited it's been building over the last few months and that is. This enthusiasm gap between Republicans and Democrats in out of money. Democratic cut at with the race vs the vote in this district. What the turnout has looked like it and that's going to be something that really resonate that think that we look for moving forward toward the November it turned it. Even in these districts state. Seemed to be reliably state Republican districts. If you'd have to get the right mix. You know democratic candidate. People supporting him. What the messages. You know they can put the stake in plane that's what obviously Democrats are in need if they want when packed House of Representatives and. Sure looks to me like lamb and basically as you said got the money. And then who's had some sort of message that was zeroing in on two or three things that probably. And it took him more to the right of his own party. That yet that's the army yet and only a moderate Republican. You know did not sort of you do the that that it did democratic standard bearers for him you know on you know national Democrats to plug the others Newt is stay away Joseph Biden. It campaign or Biden overly popular. But that the country. You know and Pennsylvania that sort of working class Democrat model that it has been the cornerstone of Joseph Biden's political reforms that president and so Utah State's be that but again lamb really tried to run its rate. Locally. Do a lot of nationally or didn't you know ask for a lot of national Democrats campaign for the content together and tried to run hand in hand with president Rogge the president was there on Saturday with a rally. With. The code. Donald Trump junior did from the events or account Kellyanne Conway I think that if you're and so that was really I think why Democrats. Are are looking at this rate and things aren't maybe this is the strategy not every district but in some of these districts that you know the president won by. Popularity may be sliding a little bit. A Democrat consider run on their message being independent. Sort of moderate Democrat in some of these places. And and the Al ad does running again you know somebody who's his writings sort of and it and the president. And just to be viewed. Clear about it mid term elections a lot of times assist the president will see those mid terms slowing the other way after an election. Or yeah outdoor lady burst mid term of an administration goes portly accompli reverend when he and President Obama at that Aqua about that was such a lactic. You know that happened the Al wires to two the first election. After an eleven. Republicans did did pretty well epic that was almost a case sort of hold the ground kind of campaign and and the circumstances are certainly very different. Bomb to your right historically. You know Republicans probably are getting get into it and the Democrats get but he is interesting and the district beat beast wrong. Republican districts. It is he would sort of bella does add to that point if this week's special election. The person who ultimately when that only at an office in January and have another election in November this is one of those districts that we re drawn by the supreme court of Pennsylvania. This district come November is going to be a little bit more favorable for Democrats anyway. But again it's not about did that district in this race and more about sort of acting. Trying and it has the you know where these trends are and what kind of message is resonating with voters. Infinity swing year districts that are not even sweeter districts heading in the editor. Hey thanks for being with us we appreciate it Fox News radio's Jared Halpern with a us this morning talk about that election in a special election in Pennsylvania that may or may not. Some sort of trend setter course. Political people always look at these kind of things intrinsic.
