Gwen Combs is a public school teacher, a U.S. Air Force veteran, mother and community organizer. Gwen is seeking the Democratic nomination for U.S. Congress from Arkansas’s 2nd Congressional District.
"We need elected officials who are willing to do the work necessary to talk across party lines and engage in bipartisan efforts. We need members of Congress who know what it's like to work hard, to overcome obstacles, and to fight for what's right. I believe I fit the bill on all counts." - Gwen Combs
I left the U.S. Air Force to become a mom. I became a teacher because I knew I would be able to serve my country in a way that was far less dangerous than remaining in the military - or so I thought. And then Columbine happened, creating in me a deep cognitive dissonance. Teaching wasn’t supposed to equate to serving in a potential war zone.
I'm inviting my friends and supporters to join me for Galentine's Day with Gwen - a celebratory fundraiser at which we will kiss the patriarchy goodbye as we move toward the 2018 midterms!
Dear sisters -
Yesterday, on January 20, 2018, we reunited once again - this time to #MarchOnArkansas. Looking at all of you who gathered in downtown Little Rock in the name of resistance and persistence gave me so much so much hope.
LITTLE ROCK - In 2017, we marched, rallied, held vigils, wrote letters, made phone calls, and showed up.
Now, once again, it’s time to get your marching shoes and signs ready! This Saturday, January 20, 2018, we will celebrate the #WeekendOfWomen and #MarchOnArkansas!
As the only female candidate in the race for U.S. Representative French Hill’s seat in the 2nd Congressional District, I feel a strong sense of obligation to the women in this district. For far too long, we have been either unrepresented - and, in more recent years - underrepresented in Congress.
