Bob Costa: ‘Conor Lamb Ran As a Moderate Democrat But a Democrat Nonetheless’

‘Conor Lamb ran as a moderate Democrat but a Democrat nonetheless’

EXCERPT:

COSTA: "Conor Lamb ran as a moderate Democrat but a Democrat nonetheless. There’s no question about that. He -- he ran against the House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, said he would not vote for her in the a leadership contest, but what’s unsettling to Republicans that I've spoken to in the last 24 hours is that Rick Saccone, the Republican who was defeated, he ran as someone who embraced the Trump image, who embraced the Trump message, and he was not able to survive in a district the president won by 20 percentage points just two years ago. And so as Republicans look to try to survive a possible midterm storm, they’re wondering will the president be enough to get them over the finish line?"
