Rep. Conor Lamb Enters Pennsylvania Senate Race

As expected, Rep. Conor Lamb (PA-17) is launching his 2022 Pennsylvania U.S. Senate campaign Friday. 

Lamb rose to prominence by narrowing winning a special election to flip a long-held Republican congressional seat in 2018. He joins a field of prominent Democrats hoping to win the nomination. This includes the state's Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, state Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta and County Commissioner Val Arkoosh. 

The general election race is seen as a toss-up, as incumbent GOP Sen. Pat Toomey is not seeking a 3rd term. It will be a key race in determining who controls the Senate, currently split at 50-50, after the 2022 midterms.

Lamb is the 15th current House member to announce they are retiring or seeking another office in 2022.
