A third candidate has emerged for the Democratic nomination for the 3rd Congressional District seat held by U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Butler.

Dan LaVallee, 26, of Cranberry was a deputy director at American Health Insurance Plan in Washington, D.C., but is campaigning full-time for the office, spokesman Daniel Hellweg said.

LaVallee said in a statement that he would “offer new, energetic leadership in Congress and seize opportunities for economic growth by developing more partnerships between universities and businesses, investing in job training and tackling Washington's irresponsible and reckless spending habits.”

He will face Matt Ryan, 31, of Cranberry, and Rob Joswiak, 31, of Concord, in the May 20 primary election.

The Third Congressional District covers all of or portions of Butler, Lawrence, Mercer, Erie, Clarion, Crawford and Armstrong counties.
