Cori Bush Career

In the year 2018, Bush launched a campaign against incumbent Democratic representative Lacy Clay in Missouri’s 1st congressional district. She and her campaign were featured in the2019 Netflix documentary Knock Down the House, which covered her first primary challenge to Clay. In 2020, Bush ran against Clay again. And in the same year, she narrowly defeated Clay in the primary election in what was widely seen as an upset. Bush received 48.5% of the vote, winning St. Louis City and narrowly losing suburban St. Louis County. The district is so heavily Democratic that in November, her primary victory was considered tantamount to election. Her primary win ended the Clay family’s 52-year hold on the district. No Republican has received more than 40% in the district since the late 1940s.

Bush joined “The Squad”, a group of progressive Democratic lawmakers, soon after being sworn in. With the caption “Squad Up”, Bush posted a photo of herself, the four original squad members, and another new member, Bowman, on Twitter. Bush introduced a resolution to remove every Republican who supported attempts to overturn the 2020 United States presidential election from the House of Representatives, hours after pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol, on January 6, 2021. Bush called the attack on the Capitol a “white supremacist insurrection” incited by the “white supremacist-in-chief”, during announcing her support for the second impeachment of Donald Trump.  She is also a progressive Democrat, supporting policies such as criminal justice and police reform, abortion rights, Medicare for All, a $15 minimum wage, tuition-free state college, and trade school, and canceling student debt.
