PENNSYLVANIA, USA — Editor's note: The above video is from Feb. 1, 2022.
Lamb ran in a different district than the one he was elected to represent in a 2018 special election because court-ordered redistricting changed the boundaries of the state's congressional districts. Click here to read more about the state's new congressional maps.
Four candidates are running in the Democratic primary for the open-seat U.S. Senate race in Pennsylvania on May 17, 2022. Sen. Pat Toomey (R)—who was first elected to the Senate in 2010—announced on October 5, 2020, that he would not run for re-election. Lt. Gov. John Fetterman and Lamb have received the most campaign contributions and media attention. State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta and Alexandria Khalil are also running.
Pennsylvania is also one of six states with one Democratic and one Republican U.S senator as of the 2022 U.S. Senate elections.
Christopher Wilson of Yahoo News wrote that the race for Toomey's seat "might be the Democratic Party’s best chance to gain a Senate seat in the fall."
