How to run (successfully) with substance with Lauren Underwood
Two weeks ago, Lauren won the Democratic Primary for Congress in the Illinois 14th District.
In an upset victory, Lauren beat six other candidates - all men - with 57% of the vote.
We met Lauren at the first Arena Summit in December 2016. She walked through the doors and said she was thinking about running for office. And that’s where she met her eventual campaign manager.
Lauren later declared a run for Congress and joined our inaugural class of Fellows.
We’ve been privileged and honored to support Lauren during each step in her journey and can’t wait to see what she accomplishes in the years ahead.
Lauren is a first-time candidate, former Senior Advisor in President Obama’s Health & Human Services Department, and Registered Nurse.
