At our January 22nd meeting, NOPE decided to support Conor Lamb in the March 13 special election for the Pennsylvania 18th Congressional district (southwest and southeast of Pittsburgh). Conor Lamb (D) is running against Rick Saccone (R), a state representative who aligns with Trump (Trump and Pence are campaigning for him). The seat was vacated by Tim Murphy, a pro-life Republican who resigned after he impregnated his staffer and then asked her to have an abortion. This race will be an uphill battle to win, but there is a lot of energy around Lamb and a January 22 poll found him to be only three points behind!
