Biden to Campaign for Lamb in PA-18 Special Election
According to the Post-Gazette Biden will visit the district on March 6th for two separate events. The first is a rally with union members at a carpenters training center, followed by a rally in Robert Morris University’s Yorktown Hall at 6 p.m. The doors will open at 5 p.m. for the event.
“Conor Lamb will be a champion for the working people of southwestern Pennsylvania. He’s not afraid to say the word ‘union.’ I know he will stand up for the people of his district, whether it means protecting Social Security and Medicare, or fighting to create good, quality jobs you can support a family on,” Biden said in a statement.
The visit marks one of the first visits by national Democrats touted by the Lamb campaign.
“Vice President Biden knows us, he knows what’s important to us here in southwestern Pennsylvania, and he knows we can attack the problems we face without attacking each other. I’m grateful for his support and we’re excited to welcome him to the 18th district in the final week of this special election,” Lamb said.
The special election between Lamb and Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone will be held on March 13th.
