WINNER CONOR LAMB
Just five months ago, almost no one in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District knew Conor Lamb’s name.
But since quitting his job as a federal prosecutor to run for a vacant House seat, the 33-year-old has spent a lot of time introducing himself to people.
Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald says that’s exactly what he had to do — particularly as a Democrat in Trump country.
“You gotta show up and talk to people. Conor’s been to every fish fry, every VFW, every American Legion, senior center, doors,” Fitzgerald told NPR’s Scott Detrow. “He’s been relating to people. And that’s really what it takes for Democrats to get away from just urban areas and get out into the smaller towns and compete.”
And compete he did.
And he beat Trump’s boy, Rick Saccone. And he embarrassed Trump.
Good job Conor!
