Conor Lamb is going to prove absolutely essential to the coming blue wave this year. His possible victory in Pennsylvania will give Democrats a sign of what might come and how to prepare. The 18th district of Pennsylvania is going to be a closely watched race with implications across the state. The press is already on this race slated for March and the anticipation is driving large amounts of interest into the state. How things will go in the coming days is going to say a lot. Lamb has a battle ahead but it’s going to be an important one to win.
The March special election has some parallels with the special election of last December. In that election we saw Republicans with high expectations of victory see their chances go down the drain as Doug Jones defeated Roy Moore. His success isn’t something to scoff at or chalk up to a fluke. It represents the fact that the Trump movement has peaked and we are already seeing it fade away. If fades away fast enough we may very well see 2018 spell an entirely different moment for politics in America. People are getting tired of what they’re being offered by the right and they want to see big money leave politics.
End Citizens United is supporting Conor Lamb because they believe he has the perfect opportunity to help remove big money from politics. After the Citizens United decision it became very obvious that there was something going on we couldn’t appreciate. We were losing our democracy to those who had profit motivations. Something needed to be done in order to ensure that Americans would have the ability to decide exactly how their politics would go. This was just one way to make sure that we finally reach that point.
We don’t need to guess to understand how the special election is going to change things. It has already scared Republicans by showing that people have a desire to see something besides what they want to offer. The Democrats are the ones with the ability to change things and the ability to give people what they are looking for. End Citizens United is hoping to turn this year into a major comeback for the fight against big money in politics. They just need to make sure that we have fully embraced what they are going to be offering the voters today.
