Leah Phifer, Candidate for Congress from Minnesota. Prior to running for office, Leah worked for both the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.
“I had been thinking about running, but I thought it was one of those things I’d do when I was 50. It never occurred to me to do it at this stage in my life. I started thinking, after the election, the direction we were headed as a country, state, district, became more and more distressing to me. I thought, why am I waiting? Why shouldn’t I run now?”
