Lamb Won’t Support Pelosi For Democratic Leader
“I think it’s clear that this Congress is not working for people. I think we need new leadership on both sides,” Lamb told the Post-Gazette.
The move by Lamb is important as Republicans are likely to going to try to tie Lamb to Pelosi, similarly to how Republicans defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in the Georgia 6th special election.
Lamb turned the tables on the attempts to tie him to Pelosi by pushing the Republican candidate, state Rep. Rick Saccone, towards House Speaker Paul Ryan.
“The real issue here is not Nancy Pelosi: It’s [current speaker of the House] Paul Ryan. He’s the one who has declared that he’s coming after Medicaid and Social Security,” Lamb told the Post-Gazette.
The special election will be held March 13th.
