Democrat Conor Lamb has been sworn in as the newest member of Congress after winning a closely watched special election in Pennsylvania. Members of the state’s congressional delegation escorted Lamb to the well of the House where House Speaker Paul Ryan administered the oath. The top House Democrat, Nancy Pelosi, is recommending that Lamb serve on the Veterans’ Affairs Committee and the Science, Space and Technology Committee. The 33-year-old Lamb won his seat by about 750 votes in a Pittsburgh-area district Donald Trump captured by almost 20 percentage points in 2016.
