HARRISBURG(AP) – Democrat Conor Lamb and Republican Rick Saccone each could see a primary contest in new congressional districts after they battled for an existing district in southwestern Pennsylvania. Lamb’s campaign said today that he’s seeking a full term in Congress in a new district west of Pittsburgh against three-term Republican Rep. Keith Rothfus. Lamb holds a slim lead over Saccone after Tuesday’s special election to fill the remaining 10 months of disgraced ex-Republican Rep. Tim Murphy’s term. Vote-counting is ongoing. Saccone and Republican state Sen. Guy Reschenthaler are gathering signatures in a new district in southwestern Pennsylvania’s corner. The deadline to file signatures is Tuesday. Under a state court order, the boundaries of Pennsylvania’s 18 U.S. House districts will change next year. The new ones are in play in this year’s mid-term elections.
