THE CANDIDATES WHO WILL CHANGE CONGRESS
Candidates’ new energy and voters’ enthusiasm in 2018 elected a House majority that has been a vital safeguard against the reckless policies of President Trump and Republicans in Congress. Inspired by Democrats’ unstoppable wave of determination, Remedy PAC will support candidates that can be lifted past the finish line with focus and resources.
Here are nine key races to expand our House majority and take control of the Senate:
SENATOR DOUG JONES was elected in a 2018 special election. He is a former prosecutor and U.S. Attorney who successfully prosecuted two Ku Klux Klan members for the 1963 Birmingham church bombing. Senator Jones has been a sensible, hard-working Senator for Alabama, putting the health and economic interests of Alabamans above big business.
Senator Jones is a constant target of President Trump, and winning the majority in the U.S. Senate requires re-electing him to the Senate.
AL GROSS is running as an independent for U.S. Senate in Alaska. He is a lifelong Alaskan, an orthopedic surgeon and commercial fisherman. His father is a former Democratic Attorney General for Alaska.
Gross shares the independent leanings of Alaskan voters. His experience and wisdom are needed in Congress as we battle both COVID-19 and an administration that undermines doctors and scientists and that jeopardizes our health and safety.
Kansas House District 03
CONGRESSWOMAN SHARICE DAVIDS is a former attorney and the first Democrat elected to Congress in Kansas in more than ten years.
Raised by her mom, who served in the Army for 20 years, Congresswoman Davids is one of the first two Native American women and the first openly LGBT Native American to serve in Congress.
Her focus in Congress is to limit the influence of special interests and make health care more affordable and accessible.
South Carolina Senate
JAIME HARRISON is running to unseat Lindsey Graham. Harrison is the son of a single teenage mom, raised by his grandparents. From a mobile home to Yale University and Georgetown Law, he never forgot who he was or where he came from.
Starting out as a teacher at his high school, Harrison has dedicated his life to creating opportunity for others and knows that when your community needs help, party labels don’t matter.
California House District 04
BRYNNE KENNEDY is an entrepreneur and author. Rooted in the values of hard work and the promise of the American Dream, Kennedy was raised in a rural area hit hard by a changing economy.
An accomplished businesswoman, Kennedy has helped to bring infrastructure and real estate projects to life, and built Topia, an HR technology company. Kennedy is the author of "Flat, Fluid and Fast", which provides a playbook to success in the future economy.
CALIFORNIA HOUSE DISTRICT 50
AMMAR CAMPA-NAJJAR served in the U.S. Department of Labor and at the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
A small business owner, Campa-Najjar’s business background gives him a unique perspective to advocate for the economic security of Americans.
There has been much turmoil in this district after the incumbent was convicted of corruption and resigned.
CONGRESSWOMAN LUCY MCBATH is an author, activist, and former Delta Airlines flight attendant. After the tragic shooting death of her son, Congresswoman McBath dedicated her life to activism so that no other family experiences the grief of losing someone to gun violence.
With the backing and support of Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action, McBath flipped her House seat blue in 2018 and uses it as a bully pulpit to end gun violence. This race is a toss-up and holding the House majority requires re-electing Congresswoman McBath.
Virginia House District 01
QASIM RASHID is an author, human rights activist, politician, and attorney. He previously served as the national spokesperson for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA. Rashid has worked to combat domestic and sexual violence against women, uplift the incarcerated through prison chaplaincy, serve his neighbors through blood drives and highway cleanups, and advocate for children’s education.
Oklahoma House District 05
CONGRESSWOMAN KENDRA HORN is an attorney who worked in the aerospace industry and the nonprofit sector and is a fifth-generation Oklahoman.
She is the first Democrat to represent this district in 44 years. Congresswoman Horn has worked across the aisle to support bipartisan legislation aimed at assisting small businesses and protecting the health and economic security of Oklahomans.
This race is a toss-up and holding the House majority requires re-electing Congresswoman Horn.
THERESA GREENFIELD is running for Senate in Iowa. She is a farm kid with farm kid values. Growing up on a farm instilled in her a get-it-done attitude she will bring to the Senate to solve problems for our working families.
When the farm crisis of the 1980s hit rural families like Theresa’s, she did not give up on her dream to attend college. With the help of financial aid and multiple part-time jobs, she put herself through school.
Theresa married and as she and her husband were expecting their second child, he was killed in an accident at his job as a union electrical worker. As a young widow, times were tough but Theresa set out on a path to provide for her two boys as a single mom. One of the things that helped Theresa’s family stay out of poverty and get back on their feet was Social Security survivor benefits, and she’s committed to protecting Social Security against partisan attacks in Washington. Theresa worked as an urban planner and has worked in real estate and development in Iowa.
