Update July 2019: Democrat Norton, the longtime incumbent, won re-election in 2018.
She next faces re-election in two years. Please keep her in mind when choosing your Core Four for 2020.
Re-elect Democrat Eleanor Holmes Norton, Congresswoman for the District of Columbia, because she is awesome.
Norton is in her fourteenth Congressional term. Because she represents the District of Columbia, she is a non-voting member of the House, which means she cannot join votes on the floor of the House. This does not stop her from being awesome and fierce. She serves on several House committees and can speak on the House floor.
She continues to pursue legislation that would give Washington, D.C. a vote in the House of Representatives. She belongs to the Congressional Progressive Caucus and the Congressional Black Caucus.
If you’re thinking, “I know she’s awesome, but I can’t remember how I know that,” let us refresh your memory. You saw her on The Colbert Report back in the day:
Yeah. Give her support and campaign donations, please.
