CANONSBURG, March 14 — Conor Lamb, a moderate Democrat, claimed victory in today’s election for a US 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. — Reuters
