Katherine Clark

Incumbent

Rep. Clark (MA-05) has spent her career as a public servant. She was a state senator, state representative, general counsel for the Massachusetts Office of Child Care Services, and policy chief for the state attorney general prior to heading to Congress in 2013. She is Vice Chair of the Democratic Caucus.

As Vice Chair of the Democratic Caucus, Clark was instrumental in ensuring H.R. 1, the For the People Act, was the first piece of legislation brought to the House floor in the 116th Congress. This bill is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. It 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. Clark also introduced H.R. 1481, the Presidential Accountability Act, which would require the President and Vice President to divest themselves of certain financial conflicts of interest.
