President Donald Trump has privately criticized Rick Saccone, the Republican candidate running in the Pennsylvania House race whose rally Trump attended Saturday, according to four sources who spoke with Axios.

Politico first reported of Trump's unease with Saccone, who the president has said is a "weak" candidate. Saccone is in a tight race against Democrat Conor Lamb in a closely watched special election, but Lamb, according to some top Republican officials, is running a better campaign and Saccone has been a poor fundraiser.

Trump, though, at the rally told the crowd he needed Saccone to help "keep America great again."

"Do me a favor. Get out on Tuesday and vote for Rick Saccone. And we can leave right now," he said.
