A Republican loss would be embarrassing for the president and - less than three months after a stunning Democratic upset in the Alabama U.S. Senate race - would be another sign of a weakened party heading into the midterm elections.

The seat became vacant when Representative Tim Murphy, a Republican and abortion opponent, resigned in October after it was learned that he had encouraged a woman he was having an affair with to terminate her pregnancy.

Murphy, an eight-term congressman who had union support, never had a close election and had no Democratic challenger in his last two elections.

Saccone is mocking reporters he says have asked him whether Trump is still popular in Pennsylvania. Trump said he's accomplished a lot. "It's an A-plus candidate, honestly, in Conor Lamb, versus an F candidate in Saccone and the campaign that has been run".

"He believes in hard work, he believes in labor", Biden said, referring to Lamb's working-class credentials. More than 80,000 people in the district are in union households, with almost 18,000 of them affiliated with the steelworkers' union. "Right? Right?" he said.

President Trump arrived in western Pennsylvania on Saturday night for one of his favorite presidential tasks: delivering a long, free-association speech at a political rally.

President Donald Trump on Saturday again proposed the death penalty for convicted drug dealers.

Trump also has endorsed Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte's approach to the issue; Duterte's "drug war" has led to the deaths of thousands of people by extrajudicial police killings. They are killing our families, and we have to do something ...

"It's 1999, I'm on 'Meet the Press, ' a show now headed by sleepy-eyes Chuck Todd", Trump said.

Syrian army gains ground in eastern Ghouta
State media have reported people in eastern Ghouta raising Syrian government flags and holding small protests in support of Assad. The convoy entered during a brief lull but the bombardment and fighting resumed after the convoy entered Eastern Ghouta.

Singapore's model is more in line with the administration's goals for drug policy than some other countries, a senior administration official said.

In a brief interview as volunteers buzzed through the two-story office, the first-time candidate insisted that winning elections isn't "rocket science".

The President's moves on tariffs this week were, in part, created to gin up support for Saccone; Trump has told associates that he hopes the tariffs will play well with his base, including voters in Pennsylvania 18th District around Pittsburgh and in the heart of America's steel industry. "It's a insane time out there", Trump said.

Trump spoke about his role in reducing nuclear threats from North Korea as well and how the event was a great success.

Trump says, "the only way to solve the drug problem is through toughness". "You know the Chinese and Filipinos don't have a drug problem".

According to the Guardian, he began the segment by praising the criminal justice system in China - and even said he got the idea for the "discussion" from Chinese President Xi Jinping. And there was a nice unity. "But that's OK. Because that's what we do, we handle things". That's because he'll already have spent years in office. His new slogan will be "Keep America great!" with an exclamation point.

He said the candidate he most wants to run against in 2020 is Oprah Winfrey, predicting the campaign "would be a painful experience for her".

"I'd love to beat Oprah".

He went to attack his predecessors for not meeting with Kim and said his meeting would be a great accomplishment and had forced concessions from "a man who is nuked up all over the place".
