    On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss today's special election in Pennsylvania between Republican Rick Saccone and Democrat Conor Lamb. Will President Trump's fiery rally for Saccone last Friday be enough to secure the seat or will the 33-year old former Marine be on his way to Washington DC?

    Scheduled Guests: (Show 7-10 AM ET)

    Micah Cohen — Politics Editor at Five Thirty Eight | Topic: Today's Special Election in Pennsylvania

    The website/blog FiveThirtyEight is one of the premier resources for political polls and election forecasting. Today, Fault Lines is lucky to be joined by the Political Editor at FiveThirtyEight, Micah Cohen, to break down today's Special Election in Pennsylvania's 18th District and what the result may indicate for November's midterms.

    Last week, Luke Rosiak of The Daily Caller joined Garland and Lee in-studio to discuss his extensive reporting on the troubling case of the Awan Brothers. Luke returns to the show for a follow-up report to continue shining light on this unresolved situation.

    DACA and immigration reform have been extensively discussed by Congress and in the media, but no deal appears likely in the near future. Regular Fault Lines guest Liana Montecinos also joins Garland and Lee in-studio to talk about the status of the Dreamers and how relief efforts have been going in Puerto Rico following last year's devastating hurricane.

    We'd love to get your feedback at radio@sputniknews.com
