Conor Lamb’s decorated career in the military, law, and now, politics has treated him quite well. Let’s see how it all happened below.


Lamb was born in the land of politics, Washington, D.C. in 1984. He grew up in Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania. The Lamb family has been active in Pittsburgh-area politics for many years. Conor’s grandfather, Thomas F. Lamb, served as the Democratic Majority Leader in the Pennsylvania State Senate from 1970 to 1974, and later served as Secretary of Legislative Affairs under Governor Robert P. Casey. A Catholic, Lamb attended St. Bernard School in Mt. Lebanon, graduated from Central Catholic High School (Pittsburgh) in 2002. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2006 with a B.A. degree in political science, and earned a J.D. degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 2009.


After law school, Lamb completed Officer Candidates School (United States Marine Corps) and was commissioned as an officer in the United States Marine Corps. He was stationed at the Marine base on Okinawa Island, where he prosecuted cases of rape and sexual assault. Lamb completed his active duty service in 2013 as a Captain and joined the Marine Corps Reserves.


By 2014, Lamb was clerking for Joseph Frank Bianco, a federal judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York. Following that, in October 2014, Lamb was appointed an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the United States Department of Justice’s Pittsburgh office. Lamb has been heavily involved in efforts to combat the opioid epidemic in Western Pennsylvania, and has led aggressive prosecutions involving opioid-related deaths, other violent crimes and drug and gun trafficking.


In October 2017, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Lamb was considering running for Congress in a special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district. The vacancy was created when Rep. Tim Murphy (R) resigned amid revelations that he had an extramarital affair, and had urged his mistress to terminate an unexpected pregnancy, despite his long record as a vocal opponent of abortion. After a very tight race against Republican opponent Rick Saccone, it was announce that Lamb had won the seat in Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district.
