Elaine Luria

Current Position: US Representative for US House District 2 since 2019
Affiliation: Democrat

"Today, too many Americans are working hard and getting less. That’s because politicians in Washington aren’t looking out for them. That’s why I am running for Congress.

The core values of Security, Equality, and Prosperity will serve as my compass in representing the 2nd District."

Denver Riggleman

Current Position: US Representative for US House District 5 since 2019
Affiliation: Republican

"As a political outsider, veteran, small business owner, and grassroots conservative, I will bring a fresh perspective to DC and help pass the President’s agenda. As we have all seen over the past few years, it takes a real outsider with real-world experience to drag the swamp monsters to dry land."
