Chuck Schumer United States Senator, New York
I decided to challenge my sitting congressman after he cast a vote that would have made it harder for people with pre-existing conditions to buy health insurance. Since I launched my campaign for Congress more than a year ago, I’ve won my primary, outraised my opponent and polls are show us nearly tied. The National Democratic Training Committee’s support and training courses have been invaluable throughout this process.
