Winning a race for public office is hard - especially when candidates have extensive military experience, but little practical political experience. That's why the key to building a long-term, progressive cadre of national leaders with on-the-ground foreign policy experience is to have a "deep bench," as they say in sports. We have to help veterans gain political experience in lower-level office, some of whom one day may then be called to run for higher office.

So today, we'd like to introduce you to two of what we call our "Emerging Leaders". We'd also like to ask you to help put them in office by donating to their campaigns.
