Tammy Duckworth, elected to the House of Representatives in 2012, is running for a Senate seat in Illinois. In Congress, she has focused on growing our economy, investing in infrastructure, improving the lives of our veterans, and cutting government waste and fraud. She serves on the House Armed Services and House Oversight and Government Reform Committees.
After serving as a helicopter pilot in the U.S. Army, where she was severely injured (losing both legs and partial use of her right arm in Iraq), she has worked as an advocate for veterans. She has served as director of the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs and as Assistant Secretary at the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (starting in 2009), leading efforts to end veteran homelessness, initiatives for female veterans, and the creation of the Office of Social Media and Online Communications and the Office for Tribal Government Relations.
