Trump Jr. joined Republican candidate Rick Saccone at Sarris Candies in Canonsburg Monday to tour the facility and encourage President Trump's base to get out to the polls. His staff said the candidate himself held no public events Monday and scheduled no media availability.
On Tuesday, after casting his own ballot in the suburb of Pittsburgh where he lives, Lamb will hit the polls with his grandmother, then with a conservative Democrat whom he defeated for the party's nomination.
"Rick Saccone is a proven supporter of the Second Amendment", NRA political lobbying executive Chris Cox said in a statement at the time.
The district will no longer exist after this year. But the scandal-driven resignation of former Rep. Tim Murphy - a Republican who had not even drawn a Democratic challenger in his last two races - gave Democrats an opening, and Lamb raced through it. The area has been split up into different districts beginning next year, which illustrates just how seriously both sides are taking this race.
The vice president argues that Trump's entire agenda is on the line in a race that is being viewed as a bellwether of a challenging midterm election cycle for Republicans.
Trump Jr., eating ice cream with Saccone at Sarris Candies in front of dozens of cameras, said Trump supporters "gotta stay in the game, they gotta stay motivated". "Get out there and vote".

Burch reports that "Democratic canvassers are now going door-to-door telling voters to "vote for the Catholic" in the race". Registered Democrats still outnumber Republicans by nearly a four-to-three ratio in a district where gun rights are a high priority, and Democrats still hold some local offices.
For months, Republican groups led by the National Republican Congressional Committee tried to define Lamb as a national Democrat, the kind who usually lost. But I don't see yet that the national Republican efforts to link Lamb to Pelosi is working.
"Yes, the phone calls and the mailings and the people coming to my house and the radio", he said. "He's done all he's able to do at this point", said one White House official. The Republican had won his party's nomination in an upset, after winning four terms in the state house through low-dollar, grass-roots campaigns. Were there other possible candidates who could have been a better fit? "And there were a large number of people who didn't care".
