Democrat for U.S. Congress

Why I’m Running

I’m running for Congress in Missouri’s Second District because there is too much at stake to sit on the sidelines. Just a few months into this administration, it’s clear that establishment politicians in Washington will sacrifice our health care, our education, and our system of checks and balances just to score political points…

            [message] => Some of my thoughts on the incredible students who have led the way this week. 

"For the better part of 50 years, the gun lobby has held our democracy hostage, blocking popular and effective restrictions that could help keep us safe. The students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas, and the students joining them across America, are demonstrating their conviction that it doesn’t have to be that way. That we can enact sensible laws to prevent deadly weapons from falling into dangerous hands. That not one more child has to die so that a politician can collect her check from the NRA.

We’re the grown-ups. We need to be worthy of that conviction."

Meet Cort

Cort is an attorney, advocate, and teacher who was born and raised in Missouri. He’s running to represent the Second Congressional District because he believes that the people of the district deserve a representative who works for the people, not for corporate donors. He will work tirelessly to bring accountability and integrity to Washington…

Real Accountability, Real Progress

Cort has a compelling personal story, a strong set of values, and a history of active leadership in the St. Louis community. He is running a professional and competitive campaign that has been impressive to watch. Young and progressive voices are sorely needed in our region and in Congress. I know he would represent us well
