Amy McGrath - Kentucky 6th District - Andy Barr's seat
Retired Marine Amy McGrath is running for office to take out “Mitch McConnell’s hand-picked congressman.”
Tom Malinowski - New Jersey 7th District - Leonard Lance's seat
As Washington Director of Human Rights Watch, he helped lead a bipartisan effort to stop the use of torture, recognizing that the values we take pride in as Americans don't hold us back – they're the source of our strength. As Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor under President Obama, he stood up to dictators to advance American interests. The incumbent, Leonard Lance, has voted alongside President Trump an incredible 93.9% of the time. Lance supported the president's "de-certification" of the Iran nuclear deal, voted to roll back bipartisan anti-corruption legislation, and voted to slash funding for Fulbright exchange programs.
Andy Kim - New Jersey 3rd District - Tom MacArthur's seat
As a Rhodes Scholar, Andy received his Doctorate in International Relations from the University of Oxford. After signing up to work for the State Department, he served as a Strategic Advisor to Generals David Petraeus and John Allen in Afghanistan. Later, he returned to Washington to serve as Iraq Director at the National Security Council, where he coordinated the U.S. response to ISIS. The incumbent is a perfect illustration of a Congress that's lost its way. After being elected in 2014 on the promise that he would lead on national security issues, MacArthur left his seat on the Armed Services Committee after just one term. And after leading the moderate Tuesday Group, he left that post too this year to align more closely with President Trump – who rewarded him with a $1 million fundraiser.
Nancy Soderberg - Florida 6th District - Ron DeSantis's seat
Nancy served as a foreign policy adviser to Senator Ted Kennedy, as Deputy National Security Adviser in the White House, and as Alternative Representative to the UN. She was the International Crisis Group’s Vice President for Multilateral Affairs, promoting bold solutions to the world’s conflicts. She also led the innovative philanthropic initiative, Connect U.S. Fund, to support principled American engagement in the world. And she has advised four presidential campaigns. For the last decade, she has been a professor at the University of North Florida. DeSantis made news recently by attacking special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. He led a reprehensible effort to prevent the State Department from working with the humanitarian aid organization Islamic Relief Worldwide. And now, he's leading yet another partisan witch hunt directed at Hillary Clinton.
Christina Hartman - Pennsylvania 16th District - Lloyd Smucker's seat
Christina took on some of the world’s toughest dictatorships, leading numerous high-profile organizations and advocating for freedom and democracy in those countries and in Washington. From South Sudan to Afghanistan, she helped organizations strengthen their countries’ democracies through civic education, elections, and youth leadership development. At home, she continued to focus on community development initiatives. She worked with the Joyful Heart Foundation, a national organization pursuing justice for sexual assault and domestic violence survivors. Today, she brings her expertise to organizations in Lancaster such as Church World Service, the Non-Profit Resource Network at Millersville University, and the Parish Resource Center, providing leadership in strategic planning, fundraising, and communications to enhance the services that these organizations provide to the county and beyond.
