An investigative journalist who knows how to fight
The son of an immigrant, Jon Ossoff’s interest in public service began in high school when he interned for Congressman and civil rights leader John Lewis. As an anti-corruption journalist, Ossoff’s work focused on powerful corporations and exposing corruption. In 2017 Ossoff launched a historic campaign for a congressional seat held by Republicans since 1979, energizing voters not only in his district but across the country.
A dedicated advocate of campaign finance reform
Ossoff believes that campaign finance reform is essential to a strong democracy. His commitment to shining a light on corruption has been exemplified in his journalistic work, where he helped expose war criminals, human rights abuses and powerful corporations. In Congress, he has pledged to make anti-corruption measures, campaign finance reform and cleaning up government among his highest priorities.
An election gaining momentum
Georgia is one of the most competitive states in the country and has the opportunity to help flip the Senate in 2020. After narrowly losing the 2017 special election, Ossoff has continued to gain momentum and pique national interest. He is running against first-term Republican Senator David Perdue, who has received over $1.8 million from corporate PACs over the course of his career.
