Salena Zito throws ICE COLD WATER on what Conor Lamb’s ‘apparent’ win means for Trump

As we told you earlier, Dem Conor Lamb looks to be the “apparent winner” in the special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional district.

Lamb’s win in a ruby-red district, however, was no shock to reporter Salena Zito:

I’ve been preaching for years Democrats need this kind of candidate @ConorLambPA he did it. #pa18

We’re already seeing the pundit class preach that this obviously means the GOP is in disarray:

A few other seats that are less Republican than PA-18: OK-5, FL-3, TX-6, OH-2, VA-7.

And 114 more.

And since President Trump campaigned for Saccone, add that to the narrative:

Well, it’s not gonna be Saccone by 20….or even 10, so the results raise more questions abouit Trump in the midterms.

But not so fast…

Zito is also cautioning that the union vote in the PA-18 makes the district pretty unique and these voters still “LOVE Trump”:

The story is the union family vote-LOVE Trump-wary of Saccone (right to work) unique to #pa18 + GOP has not yet “got” new populist coalition

And if anyone would know what’s going on in the PA-18, it’s Zito:

I’ve been saying all week that this race was a jump ball. I kinda know my home district #pa18

How’s that for some ice cold water splashed all over the Dem narrative?
