Dems' Lamb a Pelosi wolf in sheep's clothing?

Nancy Pelosi looking to the rightOne Pennsylvania pro-family activist hopes that voters in a special Congressional election will not be fooled by the claims of the Democratic candidate that he is a not a “Nancy Pelosi liberal.”

Ads supporting Republican Rick Saccone have blasted Democrat Conor Lamb, arguing that if the liberal candidate wins the special election taking place on March 13 in Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District, Lamb will be just one more congressional sheep – pun intended – behind the San Francisco liberal, House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

And to counter the attack, Lamb put out his own ad in an effort to try and disavow Pelosi.

"My opponent wants you to believe the biggest issue in this campaign is Nancy Pelosi – it's all a big lie,” Lamb insists in his campaign ad. “I've already said on the front page of the newspaper that I don't support Nancy Pelosi."

Diane Gramley, who serves as the president of the American Family Association (AFA) of Pennsylvania, simply does not believe Lamb's claim.

"I definitely think Conor Lamb would be a very far-left Democrat – that he would definitely be at the beck and call of Nancy Pelosi,” Gramley insisted. “I know his ads say that he would not be, but I believe that he would. I think he has a track record for being very much in the left's field when it comes to many issues that are important to folks in the 18th Congressional District."

The pro-family leader also maintains that a Democratic victory in the heavily Republican district would not bode well for 2018 – especially considering that President Donald Trump won the district by 20 points in 2016.

RealClearPolitics conducted three polls over the past two months with Sacccone winning each one. The Republican candidate beat Lamb in the poll conducted Jan. 3–5 by 12 points (46 percent to 34 percent), took the second poll conducted Feb. 12–14 by just 3 points (49 percent to 46 percent) and won the third and last RCP poll taken between Feb. 13 and 15 by 6 points (46 percent to 40 percent).

Gramley is confident that the election will ultimately come down to voter turnout.
