Conor Lamb is trying to do his best to win over the people of Pennsylvania’s 18th district. This blue collar district went for Trump in 2016, but he has plans to make sure that he’s able to reach out to them. He has the desire to give them a message that will counter what they’ve been told and get them back into the hands of the Democratic Party. If things go according to plan this just might happen without a hitch. End Citizens United, a PAC formed to help fight big money in politics, is doing all that it can to help him out.
The current political climate is perfect for Democrats to stage a victory and take back Congress from the Republicans. Their base is energized in a way that they weren’t for much of 2016 and the current winds all point to a tidal wave come November. This is all fine and well but in order for Lamb to use it to his advantage he’s going to need a PAC behind him that understands what he is about and is trying to do everything it can to help get the base rallied in his particular neck of the woods. This effort is going to take a lot of work, but all signs point to a likelihood of success.
If you look at the work of End Citizens United you can clearly see why they have gotten so far and why they continue to fight against big money in politics. The only way we will ever see any major changes is if people decide that they’ve had enough and want to do something about it. There are so many reasons to fight against corporate lobbyists and others who seek to use money to control politics, but the ability to fight back is easier than ever before.
The 18th district of Pennsylvania is going to be an interesting place when we see the special election take place. Conor Lamb has everything it takes to make himself one of the most successful and well liked candidates out there. All he needs is to find a way to show that the Democratic Party will include the working class. Trump has certainly shaken up politics and big money played a key role in that. Now, we’ll get to know what else will happen when voters get to the polls to choose their next representative.
