Meet the Candidates – Kara Eastman (NE-02) and Mike Siegel (TX-10)
Wednesday, August 26th, we were honored to welcome Kara Eastman and Mike Siegel to our “Meet the Candidates” series of online conversations. They are both progressive champions looking to flip long-held red seats in Nebraska and Texas.
Social worker and non-profit professional Kara Eastman has an impressive track record of serving the American public. In Congress, Eastman will apply that dedication to keeping Americans safe by supporting smart diplomacy and a fully-funded State Department, reclaiming Congress’ authority on war, and prioritizing funding for human needs like healthcare and education.
Civil rights lawyer Mike Siegel is ready to fight for equal opportunity and rights for those he would represent. He knows diplomacy is the best way to bring global stability and is ready to reclaim the Constitutional war powers granted to Congress. He understands that the sprawling endless wars the U.S. wages cost countless lives, taxpayer dollars, and international respect. We cannot achieve the true justice needed at home while we are caught up in these wars.
