Former state Sen. Lambert eyes run for 2nd District Congressional seat
The race for the Second Congressional District seat got easier for the patent and trademark attorney after former House Speaker William O’Brien, the perceived GOP front-runner, announced Friday he would not seek the seat because of a new job offer.
Lambert several times talked as if he were already a candidate for the GOP nomination before inserting the words “if I run.”
Asked why he wasn’t saying Sunday he was running, Lambert said: “You’ve got to have some surprise. Everybody wants a birthday party surprise.”
Lambert already has zeroed in on his campaign theme.
“You’ve got a congresswoman, again a first-time incumbent, who’s not very well known in the district,” Scala said. “If there’s a time to go after the seat, you’ve got a midterm election coming up; typically it’s not all that good for the President’s party.”
