VoteVets Backs Conor Lamb for Senate in PA

Mt. Lebanon, PA — The largest progressive group of veterans in America, VoteVets, is today endorsing Conor Lamb to be the next U.S. Senator from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

"Conor Lamb is a winner, period,” said Will Fischer, Iraq War Veteran and Senior Advisor to VoteVets. “Republicans and Donald Trump have come for him again and again and again, and all he does is win. And since winning, he’s carried the voices of hard-working Pennsylvanians to the halls of power. The midterm elections are crucial, and it is no time to play around. We need this Senate seat to go Democratic, to keep Mitch McConnell from controlling the Senate again. Conor is the one who can take that seat.

Fischer added, “Conor also never forgets where he comes from. He’s always been there for the people back home in the Commonwealth. He’s always been there for his fellow veterans, he’s always been there for our men and women in uniform, and he’s always been there for military families. We will all be well served by having him in the US Senate.”

Conor Lamb currently represents Pennsylvania’s 17th Congressional District, which includes parts of Allegheny and Butler Counties, as well as all of Beaver County in southwestern Pennsylvania.  Lamb served on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps from 2009-2013 and went on to serve as a Major in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves.

In Congress, Lamb’s priorities have been protecting Social Security and Medicare as well as fighting for good jobs and strong unions.  Using his own personal knowledge and experience to help veterans, Lamb serves on House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs.  He is also a member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology and the House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure, where he serves on multiple subcommittees to develop commonsense solutions to our nation’s toughest challenges.

Lamb resides in his hometown of Mt. Lebanon.  He is a graduate of Pittsburgh Central Catholic High School (2002) and of the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pennsylvania Law School (2006, 2009).
