WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s campaign says he’ll hold a rally in the Pittsburgh area next week.
Trump visited the region last month to talk up new tax cuts, and put in a plug for Pennsylvania state lawmaker Rick Saccone (suh-KOHN’). The Republican is running for Congress in a contest widely seen as a test of whether Trump’s party can stave off Democratic gains in the fall elections.
Saccone faces Democrat and Marine Corps veteran Conor Lamb in a March 13 special election to succeed Republican Rep. Tim Murphy, who resigned after acknowledging an extramarital affair.
Vice President Mike Pence has campaigned for Saccone.
