Mass. North Shore's 2020 Congressional Race
Seth Moulton is the Democratic incumbent candidate, hoping to continue his work putting people before politics. He won his first MA 6th district house of representatives seat in 2014, starting his term in January 2015. He believes strongly in upholding democracy and bringing a new generation of politics to Washington. He offers a progressive voice, advocating to abolish the electoral college and stand up to President Trump.
The MA 6th district is one that often goes to a Democrat. Incumbent Seth Moulton has outraised his challengers, managing to raise more than his two opponents combined. The district is looking for strong leadership, job growth, and is one where people want change.
Moulton was named the most effective freshman Democrat by the Center for Effective Lawmaking, and continues to strive for better care for veterans. He believes in service-driven leadership, and started Serve America in an effort to change Washington by mentoring candidates for Congress who are service oriented. Moulton has served three terms in Congress, and has been pushing for a new Coronavirus stimulus bill to go through.
