8. Democrats should really be all over this with an ad out TOMORROW ... this is NOT good for Saccone

Even people who fully supported Iraq (fewer and fewer admit to it), pretty few are 'fans' of the torture that happened at Abu Ghraib. And even if there are some of THEM? A lot of them would still be going 'do I want this deep state guy representing me? Maybe the real Marine is the better choice?'

Honestly if the Dems in PA are on top of things tomorrow, they should be able to bury Saccone (assuming it's true ... gotta do due diligence!) ... because this is October Surprise level-stuff.

Too bad the district will only exist a few more months so a victory is nothing but symbolic.

Well, not 'too bad' I guess, given it means we crushed the gerrymander!!!!

GO CONOR!
