Democrat Conor Lamb ran as a centrist. He did not support Nancy Pelosi, he shot an AR-15 in an ad and his campaign manager, Abby Murphy, lives in the 18th district in which he ran. She knew the issues that mattered to voters who live there. Washington Examiner columnist Salena Zito says that's what made the difference. Republican Rick Saccone's ads were flat and straight out of D.C. The best midterm election lesson for Republicans is to get out of Washington and run locally with an aspirational message. Salena says generic cookie-cutter campaigns are sure to fail for candidates under pressure. Originally aired on Cam & Co 03/19/18.
