Meet the first three Health Care Heroes!

This November, an incredible group of Democratic candidates – we're calling them the Health Care Heroes – is challenging Republicans who voted to take away people's health care last year. With our support, these folks can lead the charge to take back the House and protect health care from Republican attacks.

Contribute now to support the 2018 Health Care Heroes!

I'm excited to introduce our first three 2018 Health Care Heroes to you today:

After a stint as an NFL linebacker and then a civil rights attorney, Colin Allred (TX-32) is standing up to Rep. Pete Sessions. Over 20 years in Congress, Sessions has rejected the Children's Health Insurance Plan, refused to support mental health parity, and denied veterans coverage for the treatment they need.

A hard worker who fought her way out of poverty to lead a workforce of thousands, Angie Craig (MN-02) is taking on Rep. Jason Lewis. Last year, Lewis supported attacks on health care that Trump himself called "mean," and played a crucial role in getting Trumpcare to the floor for a vote.

Former Obama Administration official Andy Kim (NJ-03) is a national security expert and Rhodes Scholar, running to defeat Rep. Tom MacArthur. A former insurance company executive, MacArthur brought Trumpcare back from the dead last year – by crafting an amendment that threatened coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

Colin, Angie, and Andy have shown an unshakable commitment to a health care system that is compassionate, merciful, and fair. I'm proudly throwing my support behind this group of candidates. And I'm hoping I can count on you to help them out.

Chip in now to protect our health care and elect the 2018 Health Care Heroes!
