Congresswoman Mary Peltola (AK)
In one of the country’s biggest upsets, Mary Peltola bested Sarah Palin and Nick Begich to become Alaska’s newest Member of Congress during a special election in August as well as the November contest. With a strong message of fish, family and freedom, Mary Peltola showed the country how Democrats can win in traditionally Republican areas.
Congressman Chris Deluzio (PA)
Iraq war veteran Chris Deluzio won election to Congress by taking on corporate power and bad trade deals to stand up for Western Pennsylvania’s working people. Republicans spent over $12 million to try to win this 2020 battleground open seat.
Interior Secretary Deb Haaland (NM)
Deb Haaland made history in 2018 when she became the first Native American woman ever elected to Congress. Faced with nearly $2 million in outside money and a self-funded opponent during the primary, we helped build Deb’s grassroots campaign with compelling ads about her personal story of fierce perseverance and determination. She is now the first Native American Cabinet Secretary in US history.
Congresswoman Haley Stevens (MI)
In 2018, Haley Stevens turned a red district blue in suburban Detroit and ushered in a new generation of leadership in the U.S. Congress. After holding this competitive seat in 2020 by focusing on her innovative efforts to help Michigan manufacturers respond to the pandemic, in 2022 Congresswoman Stevens earned a decisive 20-point victory against a fellow sitting Democratic Member when her district lines were redrawn.
Congresswoman Melanie Stansbury (NM)
Melanie Stansbury, a science professional with deep Albuquerque roots, won the June 2020 special election to fill Secretary Deb Haaland’s open congressional seat before securing a full term in November 2020. Faced with a one-note line of attack on crime, we made sure voters knew Melanie’s strong record on law enforcement to quickly debunk the falsehood.
Congresswoman Jill Tokuda (HI)
Twelve years in the Hawaii State Senate fighting for kids and families was the experience people across Hawaii were looking for when a Congressional seat opened. We helped Jill Tokuda stand up to millions of dollars in outside spending and told the story of a mom with the heart and the experience to take on her community’s biggest challenges – and bring a little Aloha to the nation’s capital along the way.
Congresswoman Becca Balint (VT)
Becca Balint believes in showing up. A mom, a middle-school teacher and State Senate Pro Tem, Becca led the fight on historic gun violence prevention in Vermont and she passed the country’s most comprehensive constitutional amendment to protect reproductive rights. Now the first-openly gay Member of Congress from Vermont, Becca is focused on helping solve our country’s mental health crisis and she’s on the front lines of the fight for our democracy.
