Sharice Davids is one of the first two Native American women ever to serve in Congress. The daughter of a single mother Army veteran, Sharice worked her way through community college and the University of Missouri-Kansas City before earning a law degree at Cornell. She served as a White House Fellow under President Obama. In Congress, she sits on the Transportation & Infrastructure and Small Business Committees. Davids flipped her district in 2018, helping Democrats take the majority in the House of Representatives.
In office, Davids 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. Davids represents a swing district, and faces a tough re-election fight in 2020.
