All legislative districts are on the ballot this year. Lamb's home is in what will be the new 17th district, which is now represented by Republican Rep. Keith Rothfus. In the Sixth District, Republicans are defending an open seat as Michael Baumgartner is leaving and running for Spokane County treasurer.

Rep. Lou Barletta is hoping Trump's recent run of successful election suggestions continues in the Pennsylvania Republican Senate primary.

In one of the districts, Democrats are facing a competitive, crowded primary in which Sen.

Republican Rick Saccone, who lost to Lamb, is seeking redemption in a Pittsburgh-area district that favors the GOP. Republican outside groups have already reserved millions in Philadelphia, a sign they're bracing for a cash onslaught. Don Westbrook is challenging Rep. Eric Roe in the Republican Primary.
