Governor

Governor Tom Wolf

Before he was governor, Tom was the owner of the Wolf Organization, a distributor of lumber and other building products. Tom bought this family business and grew the company  — eventually more than quintupling the business in size. He did this with smart leadership and by treating his employees fairly, even sharing the company’s profits with workers.


Since he took office in 2015, Tom has fought to change Harrisburg. On day one, his first actions as governor were signing a gift ban prohibiting administration employees from accepting gifts from lobbyists and reforming legal contracting to end pay to play. Tom also donates his entire salary to charity and refuses a state pension.


When Tom took office, he inherited an education system that had been cut by one billion dollars that led to teacher layoffs, cuts to programs like pre-k and tutoring, and larger class sizes. Rather than make Pennsylvania’s children the first casualty of the budget process, Tom made our children and our future our top priority. He has now restored the one billion dollar cut to education made in the previous administration, leading to improved graduation rates and more children in pre-k.


By expanding Medicaid, Tom provided quality, affordable health care to 720,000 Pennsylvanians. He has also given more than 50,000 seniors the opportunity to age in their homes and made Pennsylvania a national leader in fighting the opioid and heroin epidemic by expanding treatment options and ensuring law enforcement and first responders have the resources they need.


Tom is working to grow our economy by making it easier for small businesses to start and expanding career and technical education opportunities. He is fighting to make sure wages keep up with the cost of living, focusing on skills training for kids who do not go to college, helping small businesses, and rebuilding Pennsylvania’s infrastructure.

Senate

Senator Bob Casey

Bob has spent two terms representing the people of Pennsylvania in the Senate, fighting for good jobs, higher wages and fairer workplaces. He is a leader with proven results for workers, women, children, seniors and people with disabilities. He has the experience and record of successful service that Pennsylvanians deserve in their Senator.


Bob has dedicated his career to serving the people of Pennsylvania, as Auditor General, State Treasurer and U.S. Senator. In Harrisburg, Bob compiled a record that focused on making government more accountable and responsive to the needs of Pennsylvanians. He has been a fiscal watchdog who made nursing homes safer and protected affordable child care. He led the fight to reform Megan’s Law to better protect Pennsylvania children and communities.


Since he was elected to the United States Senate in 2006, Bob has worked to create family-sustaining jobs and foster financial security for Pennsylvania families; protect our children and invest in their futures; ensure safety at home and respect for America abroad; promote honesty and accountability in government; preserve the dignity of the vulnerable of all ages among us; and advocate for his constituents and help them solve problems they face.


Bob was the prime Senate sponsor of landmark legislation for individuals with disabilities, the Stephen Beck Jr. Achieving a Better Life Experience Act (ABLE), which allows millions of families across the United States to save for the long-term care of their loved ones with disabilities in a tax-advantaged savings account.


He is a leader in public education, fighting for expanded access to everything from pre-K to technical schools to universities. As concerns arose across the nation about the dangers of campus sexual assault, Bob took action and passed into law the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (Campus SaVE), which outlines steps schools can take to educate students and help prevent sexual assault, requires uniform reporting standards for sexual assaults on college campuses and requires schools to provide clear guidelines to students on their sexual assault policies.


From legislation cracking down on terrorists’ financing to a law that makes it easier for small businesses to expand, Bob has a wide range of accomplishments for the people of Pennsylvania. He is committed to raising wages and creating and retaining jobs across the state. A tireless advocate for middle-class families, workers and seniors, Bob is a voice for those who are threatened by Congressional Republicans’ tax cuts to the ultra-rich and recent attempts to undermine Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

Representative

Representative Conor Lamb

Congressman Conor Lamb is a Marine and former federal prosecutor who was elected on March 13, 2018 to represent Pennsylvania's 18th congressional district in Congress, which includes parts of Allegheny, Westmoreland, Washington and Greene Counties in southwestern Pennsylvania. Lamb defeated Republican Rick Saccone in the March 13th Special Election to represent the district for the remainder of 2018, filling the seat left open after former Rep. Tim Murphy's resignation.


In February 2018, the state supreme court issued a new congressional map for the 2018 elections, changing the districts in southwestern Pennsylvania and placing Lamb into the new 17th district, which includes all of Beaver County, much of western and northern Allegheny County, and parts of Cranberry Township in Butler County. Lamb said throughout the special election that he would run for a full term in 2018 no matter where the lines were drawn, and on March 20 the Congressman-elect filed more than 4,000 signatures to get on the ballot in the new 17th district.  Lamb was unopposed in the May 15th Democratic primary, and will now face Republican Congressman Keith Rothfus, who represents the current 12th district, in the November general election.


Despite being significantly outspent in the special election by super PACs and special interest groups, Lamb's grassroots campaign raised more than $5 million, with an average individual contribution of about $33. A vocal advocate for campaign finance reform, Lamb started the campaign by refusing to accept donations from corporate PACs, and was endorsed and supported by End Citizens United, a grassroots organization dedicated to reversing the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision and getting big money out of politics.


Lamb's campaign focused on the need for new leaders in Congress who work together and get things done for working families. His priorities include creating good jobs and investing in infrastructure, protecting Social Security and Medicare, making health care more affordable for all Americans, taking comprehensive action to fight the heroin crisis, and reforming our student loan system. A vocal supporter of organized labor, throughout the campaign Lamb highlighted his commitment to help strengthen unions, make it easier for workers to organize, raise the minimum wage and fight for better pay, benefits and conditions for all working people. Lamb has been endorsed by the AFL-CIO, the Allegheny County Labor Council, United Steelworkers of America, United Mine Workers of America, SEIU, the Pennsylvania Alliance for Retired Americans, Social Security Works, and the National Committee to Preserve Medicare & Social Security, among many other labor unions and progressive organizations.


As an Assistant U.S. Attorney from 2014-2017, Lamb led prosecutions against drug dealers and violent criminals and helped establish the Justice Department's Pittsburgh office as a national leader in the fight against the heroin epidemic, working to build partnerships between law enforcement and community members in places that have been hit hardest by the crisis.

Prior to his appointment as a federal prosecutor, Lamb was a Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps. He completed active duty service in 2013 and continues to serve as a Major in the Marine Corps Reserves.


Lamb, 33, resides in Mt. Lebanon, where he grew up. He went to Pittsburgh Central Catholic High School (2002), and went to college and law school at the University of Pennsylvania (2006, 2009).
