Meet the Finalists

Val Demings (FL-10)
Former Orlando Police Chief Val Demings is running against career politician Dan Webster.

Lois Frankel (FL-22)
Lois is a progressive running against a Tea Party extremist. She is the former Mayor of West Palm Beach, where she helped revitalize the economy. She is also a 14 year veteran of the Florida State Legislature, where she worked tirelessly for working families, women, seniors and the LGBT community.

Ann Kirkpatrick (AZ-01)
Ann Kirkpatrick is a small businesswoman who learned the value of a dollar from her dad, who ran a general store. Ann knows what matters: good jobs, strong schools and a fair shot for families. She’ll bridge the partisan divide, fight for the middle class and protect Medicare. Ann puts Arizona first.

Annie Kuster (NH-02)
Annie Kuster is running for Congress to bring a new approach to Washington - one that focuses on jobs, rebuilding our economy, and working together for change. Annie is committed to not only changing Congress, but also how people get there, and she already has over 20,000 grassroots contributions.

Brendan Mullen (IN-02)
As a West Point graduate and U.S. Army veteran, Brendan understands the leadership that will keep our country secure and our families safe. As a husband and proud new father, Brendan has the Hoosier values and family values of the people of Indiana’s 2nd District.

Patrick Murphy (FL-18)
In one of the country's most competitive races, Patrick Murphy is challenging right-wing extremist Allen West – of "80 Democrats are Communists" fame – in a swing district.
