I’ve watched for years as Cort has tirelessly dedicated his time to serving our community. From protecting women’s health to supporting a progressive economic vision, Cort shares our values and will be a strong voice for hardworking Missourians in Congress. I trust him to stand up to hold the Trump administration accountable and make us proud.

Cort is the kind of person who will help working class people in Congress… His background and compassion allow him to serve all people. His dedication and commitment are why I am supporting him for Congress.

First and foremost Cort is a man of integrity. He has a passion for service and for doing the right thing. No matter how much I like him, I would not be supporting him without that conviction. He listens and he cares. He not only has what it takes to stand up to Republicans in Congress, but he has the tenacity and dedication to get real results for us that will return government to the people.

Cort comes from a working class background. He believes people who work hard and play by the rules should get a fair shake. Cort will fight to level the playing field, build opportunity for all, and focus on strengthening our communities.

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

Cort is a leader working to resist Trump and build a better future for hardworking Americans. I support him because he is unapologetically progressive, pragmatic, and unbeholden to special interests.

I support Cort VanOstran because I want to win! Cort has the smarts, skills, team, and network to defeat Ann Wagner. And because I also find him warm, caring, and humble enough to listen to his supporters, I am proud to be one.

– KELLI DUNAWAY, Former Candidate for U.S. Congress (MO-2)

I’m supporting Cort for Congress because he has lived Missouri values all his life – hard work, integrity, and common sense. When he talks about common good, he means a fair shake for everyone, not just a select few or the well-connected. He’s smart and he won’t have the wool pulled over his eyes, as he understands our constitution and the law inside and out. Most importantly, he has the makings of a true statesman. And that is truly refreshing.

– JEANNE KIRKTON, Former State Representative (91st District)

“Washington’s status-quo is no longer working for Missourians. A young, pragmatic leader committed to expanding access to affordable, quality  health care and strengthening our schools, Cort will forge common ground, work across the aisle, and speak out for Missouri families when we need it most.”

– Jill Schupp, Missouri State Senator
