  • Oct 10, 2017

After I had my son Cole, I showed up immediately on the list of members that may not seek reelection because I’d become a mom. Becoming a mom makes politics real.

 Whether it’s education policies, health care policies, family leave — it informs your decision-making. There are millions of working moms across this country that are trying to balance the responsibilities of a job and their desire to be a great wife and mom. I am grateful to be a mom. I could’ve very easily missed it, and I might’ve missed it if I hadn’t run for Congress when I did. Please share this with other working moms.
