What to know about Congressman Conor Lamb

In Pennsylvania, Democratic Rep. Conor Lamb is looking to punch his ticket out of the Senate primary and into the general election later this year. But Lamb is trailing substantially in the polls despite having support from major party organizations and throngs of elected Democrats.

He will need to overcome a wide lead held by Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman. According to the latest average poll by RealClearPolitics, Lamb lags behind Fetterman by 31 points.

If Lamb manages to clear the primary, he will face the winner of the GOP Senate primary sought by Trump-endorsed celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz and to millionaire former hedge fund manager.
