Conor Lamb, a moderate Democrat, claimed victory in Tuesday's election for a U.S. House of Representatives seat in Pennsylvania that is seen as a referendum on President Donald Trump's performance and a litmus test for midterm elections in November.

“It took a little longer than we thought but we did it. You did it," Lamb told cheering supporters as results showed him ahead of Republican rival Rick Saccone by a fraction of a percentage point. (Reporting by David Morgan Writing by Alistair Bell Editing by Paul Tait)

Pelosi: Conor Lamb's win wasn't because he criticized my leadership .
Nancy Pelosi doesn't think that Democrat Conor Lamb's disavowal of her in his special election race aided his apparent victory in Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District. "I don't think that that really had that much impact on the race," the California Democrat said at her weekly press conference Thursday. "He won. If we hadn't won, you might have a question, but we won — the 'D' next to his name was very significant."Lamb presented himself as a Pelosi critic during the race.
