“Our nation needs his leadership, vision and determination to fight for working families and older Americans. Conor understands and supports the critical roles that Social Security and Medicare play in the lives of our nation’s older citizens and their families,” says National Committee president and CEO Max Richtman.

On the campaign trail, Lamb has already warned that Republicans will try to cut Social Security and Medicare to pay for last December’s Trump/GOP tax cuts.  He opposes the privatization of Medicare and supports a number of proposals to strengthen Social Security, including providing caregiver credits to workers who take time off to provide care to family members.  Lamb will face his Republican opponent in a special election on March 13th.
