Conor James Lamb (born June 27, 1984) is an American lawyer and politician who is the U.S. Representative from Pennsylvania’s 17th congressional district since January 2019. The district serves most of the northwestern suburbs of Pittsburgh. A member of the Democratic Party, Lamb was first elected to Congress from the neighboring 18th district in March 2018, in a special election against Republican Rick Saccone that attracted national attention. After Pennsylvania’s congressional map was redrawn by court order, Lamb filed to run for a full term in the 17th district in the 2018 general election, which he also won.
Lamb was a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Pittsburgh, where he led prosecutions of cases involving opioid-related deaths, violent crimes, and gun trafficking.
