Eliot Engel

Incumbent

Rep. Eliot Engel (NY-16) is a lifelong resident of the Bronx and Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. He founded the House Oil and National Security Caucus, which works to promote clean, energy-efficient alternatives to foreign oil. He also serves on the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force and the Bipartisan Task Force for Combatting Anti-Semitism.

In office, Engel 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. Engel introduced the SECURE Our Democracy Act, which would punish and deter those who interfered in U.S. elections. He also introduced a constitutional amendment to protect voting rights.
