Christina Bohannan is a mom, law professor, state representative, and former engineer. She is running for Congress because she believes we need less bickering in Washington, and more working together. Christina will fight every day for Iowa families, kids, and small businesses because she believes if you work hard, you deserve a fair shot to get ahead.
Christina, the baby of the family, grew up living in a trailer in a rural small town. Her parents never finished high school, and her mom worked at a daycare while her dad struggled to make ends meet as a construction worker.
When Christina was in high school, her dad got sick, and his health insurance was canceled, forcing her family to choose between paying for his medicine and paying for everything else. In Congress, Christina will take on big Pharma to lower the cost of prescription drugs.
Christina became the first in her family to graduate college, working her way through engineering school and then law school by picking oranges, cleaning trailers, and as an engineer. Christina graduated first in her law school class and was Editor-in-Chief of the law review, and after graduation went on to clerk for the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
More than two decades ago, Christina became a law professor at the University of Iowa. In 2020, Christina stood up to run for office, taking on politics as usual and defeating a 20-year incumbent to now represent District 85 in the Iowa House. Now, Christina is running for Congress because she believes we need a government that works for the people, not Washington special interests.
