Don Jr. Rips 'Pretend Conservative' Dem in PA Election: He'll 'Start Working for Chuck and Nancy'
Donald Trump Jr. blasted the Democratic candidate in Pennsylvania's special congressional election while stumping for State Rep. Rick Saccone.
Saccone (R-Allegheny) faces Conor Lamb (D-Allegheny) in a Tuesday election to replace former Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Pa.), who resigned.
Trump played up his Keystone State connections, noting that he spent about half a decade in Pottstown - near Reading - attending a boarding school.
He said he remembers when the state's industrial areas in that region were churning out Firestone tires and steel.
"Where'd all those companies go... [they're] gone, along with their jobs, along with their tax base," he said.

Trump said Saccone would be a "fighter" like the president, and that Lamb's party is one of obstruction.
"They are the party of dependence. They need you to be fully dependent on them," he said. "Without that dependence, what do they have to offer? Nothing."
Trump said many Democrats run as "pretend conservatives," appearing to invoke Lamb's candidacy, and noting how Sens. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) voted against tax reform.
He said too many Democratic candidates run to represent the people in their district but often simply "fall in line with [House Minority Leader] Nancy Pelosi."
"They represent the extreme left of the Democratic Party," he said.
Trump said Republicans should not "rest on their  victories" and get out and vote for people like Saccone and in the 2018 midterms.
