Active candidates in race

John Lamb is a resident of Bozeman. According to an April 15 Facebook post, Lamb said he is running to represent Montana in Congress to “limit government overreach and spending.” His other policy priorities included investigating corrupt politicians and elected officials, opposing abortion and taxes, and supporting the First and Second Amendments.

According to Facebook photos, posts and media articles, Lamb has been a longtime supporter of the Bundy family, which orchestrated an armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016. In 2020, he unsuccessfully campaigned to represent Senate District 36 in the state Legislature as a Libertarian.

Lamb did not list a 2022 campaign website on his filing with the Montana secretary of state and did not submit a completed candidate questionnaire to Montana Free Press.

This biography was compiled with information from Lamb’s Facebook page, news articles in which Lamb is quoted, and election result records from the secretary of state’s website.
