Mr. Fetterman now leads the Democratic primary with 41% of registered Democrats saying they’d support him in the upcoming May 17 election and 26% who are still undecided, according to the poll. Approximately 17% of voters said they’d support Mr. Lamb, while only 4% said they’d support state Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta.

Fetterman first came to our attention in 2013 when as mayor of a small Pennsylvania town, he defied state law and performed a same-sex marriage ceremony. Last year he made national news when he defied a ban on rainbow flags in the Pennsylvania Capitol.
