Joe Biden to support Conor Lamb with March 6 visit to area

Former Vice President Joe Biden is visiting the region on March 6 in an effort to support Democrat Conor Lamb, one week before a special election in the 18th Congressional District.

Mr. Biden will appear at two events: a rally with union members at a training center for carpenters, followed by a 6 p.m. event at Robert Morris University’s Yorktown Hall.

“Conor Lamb will be a champion for the working people of southwestern Pennsylvania,” Mr. Biden said in a statement. “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.”

A visit from Mr. Biden, who has said Mr. Lamb has “a genuine chance of winning” the March 13 against Republican Rick Saccone, has been anticipated for weeks. He was last in Pittsburgh in mid-February as part of a book tour. And while he didn’t address the race specifically, he did urge Democrats to reconnect with voters on economic issues.

Local Democratic organizers are inviting all interested parties to attend the 6 p.m. Rally. I've received invitations even though I'm not in the 18th District. However I have contributed to Conor Lamb's campaign and I'm sure that's why I received the invitation. It's open to the public. The special election for the 18th Congressional seat is next Tuesday, March 13th.
