A veteran, a prosecutor, and a champion for Pennsylvania families
Rep. Conor Lamb (PA-17) previously served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Justice Department’s Pittsburgh office. He served on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps from 2009-2013. In Congress, he is Vice Chair of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, and is a leading voice on taking action to combat the heroin and opioid epidemic.
An early leader on reform messaging
Lamb was the first candidate of the 2018 cycle to use his No Corporate PAC pledge in paid communications, making money-in-politics a central issue to his campaign as he won an upset victory in the April 2018 Special Election. Lamb went on to win his re-election in a redrawn seat in November, and has continued the fight against corporate special interest influence in Washington, co-sponsoring the Democrat’s reform bill, H.R. 1.
A critical re-election campaign
ECU was Lamb’s first major endorsement in the special election, and ECU was the first outside group after the DCCC to go on air for Lamb. ECU also raised $320,000 in small-dollar donations for Lamb, with an average contribution of $8. Lamb will continue to be a priority for ECU as he faces re-election once again in 2020.
