Chrissy Houlahan is an Air Force veteran, engineer, entrepreneur, and educator. Raised in a military family, she earned her engineering degree at Stanford while on an ROTC scholarship, and served as a captain in the U.S. Air Force. She was the COO of AND1 Basketball, founded a non-profit, and taught chemistry at a North Philadelphia high school. Houlahan flipped her district in 2018, helping Democrats take the majority in the House of Representatives.
In office, Houlahan helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote. Houlahan represents a swing district and faces a tough re-election fight in 2020.
