HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pittsburgh’s third-term city controller is running for an open state auditor general’s office next year.

Democrat Michael Lamb made the announcement Tuesday, two weeks after he was re-elected to the fiscal watchdog job in Pennsylvania’s second-largest city.

Pennsylvania’s current auditor general, Eugene DePasquale, is completing a second four-year term and is barred from seeking another.

Several other Democrats have announced their candidacy, including Christina Hartman, a former congressional candidate from Lancaster County who has worked in human rights and nonprofit advocacy, and Nina Ahmad, a former Philadelphia deputy mayor and former president of the National Organization for Women’s Philadelphia chapter.
