Republicans privately agree, even as they look to pin the blame mostly on Saccone and downplay what it would mean to lose a deep red, culturally conservative district after a brutal loss in an Alabama Senate race late previous year, a beat-down in Virginia's gubernatorial race, dozens of losses of state legislative seats and a number of close calls in House special elections.
"We need our Congressman Saccone", Trump said, unabashedly framing the race as a tune-up for the GOP's efforts to maintain its control of Capitol Hill. He also touted five points of his experience - education, diplomacy, the military, global business and government - that he said will help Trump advance his agenda in Washington.

Republicans have pumped millions of outside dollars into the race, overwhelming the Democrats by seven to one, Yenerall said.
The president criticized Democrats for blocking his long-promised border wall and attacked so-called sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
On North Korea, Trump used his familiar refrain of, "Let's see what happens", just days after it was announced that he intends to meet directly with Kim Jong Un in the hopes of achieving the permanent denuclearization of the rogue regime. And he called Meet The Press anchor Chuck Todd "sleepy eyes" and referred to Todd as "sleeping" before piling on a vulgar insult to refer to the seasoned D.C. journalist.

But after a contentious - even toxic - first year, the Trump political brand is being tested.
The Pennsylvania special election is to replace Republican Rep. Tim Murphy, who resigned past year amid revelations of an extramarital affair in which the anti-abortion lawmaker urged his mistress to get an abortion when he thought she was pregnant.
