How a Pennsylvania state senator helped fuel Trump's election lies

  How a Pennsylvania state senator helped fuel Trump's election lies Pennsylvania state Sen. Doug Mastriano went out of his way to help advance former President Donald Trump's election lies: He spearheaded a "hearing" at a hotel in Gettysburg a few weeks after the 2020 election, where Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani made false claims about election fraud. He chartered buses to ferry his supporters to Washington on January 6. And he was briefly in charge of the Pennsylvania state Senate's partisan "audit" ofNow Mastriano's role behind the scenes helping Trump try to overturn his loss to Joe Biden is under renewed scrutiny after a Democrat-led Senate Judiciary report released last week revealed his correspondence with the Justice Department spreading debunked claims of frau

"We have to build on our majority and tell the truth about what's really going on in people's lives," Lamb said in a video.

Lamb is set to formally announce his candidacy later on Friday.

Lamb's entry into the Democratic primary could change the dynamic of the intraparty battle between candidates like Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, state Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta and Montgomery County Commissioner Val Arkoosh.

Additionally, Lamb's decision to launch a Senate bid will likely make his House seat in the 17th Congressional District a target for Republicans. Lamb narrowly defeated his Republican opponent, Sean Parnell, by just over 2 percentage points in November.

The GOP is also making the Senate race a priority. So far, the Republican primary is made up of former congressional candidates Kathy Barnette and Parnell, former Senate candidate Everett Stern, businessman Jeff Bartos and attorney Sean Gale.

The Cook Political Report rates the Senate seat as a "toss-up."

Pennsylvania is among a number of critical Senate seats that could decide the balance of power in the upper chamber for 2023. Republicans and Democrats are split 50-50 in the Senate, with Vice President Harris serving as the tie-breaking vote in favor of Democrats.
