U.S. Rep. Leonard Lance (R-7) easily secured support for his reelection bid, representing the last leg of a clean sweep of the 7th District’s GOP county organizations.
“I am so humbled and honored to once again receive the endorsements of all the county Republican organizations in my district,” said Lance. “Without the help of these organizations, their chairmen and superb committee members, I and other Republican officials would have a much harder time on the campaign trail.
