Linsenmayer Drops Out of PA-17 Primary, Endorses Lamb
Democratic Congressional candidate Ray Linsenmayer suspended his campaign for the 17th Congressional district, and endorsed Congressman Conor Lamb (D-Allegheny) to challenge Congressman Keith Rothfus (R-Allegheny).
“Conor Lamb has always shown himself to be a man of strong character and leadership, and has proven he can withstand any attacks the GOP throws at him. While Rep. Lamb and I differ on some issues, we won’t make progress on any of them without defeating Keith Rothfus and bringing new leadership to Congress,” Linsenmayer said.
Lamb was thankful for Linsenmayer’s support in the primary and going forward.
“[Linsenmayer] is a passionate advocate, and I look forward to working together in this campaign and in strengthening the Democratic Party here in southwestern Pennsylvania in the years ahead,” Lamb said.
Lamb now has a clear path through the primary to face Rothfus in the general election.
