The Pennsylvania special election could be special for the left, the right worries

How important is the special congressional election in Pennsylvania today? We will see. A roundup of editorials Tuesday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the right:

1. Why the Pennsylvania special election is not so special
From Roll Call: Sometimes, the candidates don’t even matter. It’s all about the optics.

2.  How the expensive contest in Pa.'s 18th District special election highlights America's electoral dysfunction

From the Allentown Morning Call: America needs a new election system.

3. A nominee’s shortcomings
From the Washington Times: There is a lot for Republicans not to like about Democrat Conor Lamb.
