It’s no secret Eleanor’s been at this a while. In fact, she’s running for her sixteenth term in Congress. But this year, maybe more than any before, her seniority will allow her to fight more effectively for the District than ever. As a result of President Trump’s divisive, destructive agenda, recent polling shows Democrats are not only poised to retain the House but capture the Senate as well. With the Democrats' continued majority, Eleanor will remain the chair of a subcommittee in the house. Bolstered by the respect of her colleagues and a deep understanding of how things get done in Congress, Eleanor will be able to use her position to win victories for the District more effectively than ever before.
