Why Conor Lamb won

A pretty good article on how Lamb won as well as some interesting comments from local GOP strategists.

1. Good analysis. Those Saccone ads were cringe worthy

and immature. Just like Trump.

2. About those animated Lamb/sheep ads

I laughed every time one ran despite knowing how ridiculous they were. They might not have been effective, but they were funny. I say this because Democrats, despite having, I suspect, far more humorists in their ranks than Rs do, don't use humor in their ads. Humor is an effective tool to make a point. One need look no further than The Daily Show, SNL, the opening monologues of Colbert, Kimmel, Fallon, Conan, etc. to know that.

3. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette endorsed Rick Saccone

Now they're walking it back, just as I predicted. I'm certain the news editors would have endorsed Lamb but their bosses (the Block family) told them it had to be Saccone.

Ohwell, such is life in the Steel City.
