Republican congressional candidates Rick Saccone and Guy Reschenthaler will speak at an event Thursday night in Latrobe.

The two candidates vying for the Republican nomination for Southwestern Pennsylvania's 14th Congressional District have sparred over who would best represent the district, which covers Washington, Fayette, Greene and part of Westmoreland counties. Neither candidate lives in the district.

Reschenthaler, 34, a state senator from Jefferson Hills, has said Saccone's recent loss to Democrat Conor Lamb in a special election for Congress embarrassed regional Republicans. Saccone, 60, a state representative from Elizabeth Township, said he would run a positive campaign, adding that Reschenthaler's comments show he “fancies himself.”

The men will give speeches separately at the free public event at DiSalvo's Station starting at 7 p.m. People who attend will be able to talk with the candidates until 9 p.m. The public portion of the event follows a private fundraising reception.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
