Letter to the editor: Saccone vs. Lamb
On March 13, voters in the 18th District will select their next congressman.
Rick Saccone was an Air Force counterintelligence officer in South Korea and served a year as a member of our diplomatic mission to North Korea. Following his military career, he was a TV news anchor in South Korea and has written several books on his experiences there. After he returned from Asia, he became a strong law-and-order advocate and was elected a member of the Pennsylvania Legislature, where he was instrumental in passing a number of important bills. He is a conservative and a strong advocate of the Second Amendment and the right to life. He has served four terms in Harrisburg.
Conor Lamb is a former assistant U.S. attorney in Allegheny County. Following law school, he served briefly as a U.S. Marine Corps officer in Okinawa, then returned to Pittsburgh in 2017. As a federal prosecutor, he won convictions in several drug trafficking cases.
Who is more qualified to serve in Congress? In these perilous times, America needs someone who speaks Korean, has negotiated with the North Koreans and understands their ways. We need Saccone in Congress.
