Law­yer Lisa Man­del­blatt (D) will chal­lenge Rep. Le­onard Lance (R), one of the 23 Re­pub­lic­ans to hold a dis­trict Hil­lary Clin­ton won in 2016. After re­ceiv­ing her law de­gree from Ford­ham Uni­versity, Man­del­blatt prac­ticed law and later be­came a sub­sti­tute teach­er in her loc­al school dis­trict.

Man­del­blatt: “Lance has shown that he will be a rub­ber stamp for Don­ald Trump. Our coun­try is in crisis and we need lead­ers who will stand up to the Pres­id­ent and Re­pub­lic­an lead­er­ship for the people they rep­res­ent – I know I can do that.” (re­lease)
