Update, May 11, 2019: Moulton successfully defended his seat in November 2018. He’ll be up again in 2020. Maybe consider him for your next Core Four.
But! But but but! He was among those who opposed re-electing Nancy Pelosi to the Democratic House leadership after the Dems won the house in the 2018 midterms, and he has since joined the crowded field of Democratic candidates running for president in 2020. Which, ugh. We are oversubscribed. No thank you, sir.
Help re-elect Seth Moulton, a Democrat who represents Massachusetts’s 6th District.
Moulton was first elected in 2014. He is a graduate of Phillips Andover Academy and Harvard University, where he earned a bachelor’s in physics and an MBA as well as an MPA. Between his undergraduate years and graduate school, he served four tours in Iraq with the U.S Marine Corps.
While serving, he earned a Bronze Star as well as Navy and Marine Corps Commendations for his valor. He told no one about these awards, not even his parents. News of his decade-old heroism broke in October 2014, not long before he was first elected.
Moulton is a progressive who believes in legalizing marijuana. He supports same-sex marriage, reproductive rights, and better gun laws.
He also administered a nooice Twitter burn to President Trump over his mid-May 2017 complaints of being the subject of what he called “the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”
Moulton won the Internet for the day when he countered:
As the Representative of Salem, MA, I can confirm that this is false.
Moulton won’t face any party competition in the September 4, 2018 primary, but there will be a Republican and a Libertarian running against him. The Cook Political Report rates the Massachusetts 6th District race as Solid Democrat.
