The seat is currently held by a Republican. Also on the program is Rebecca Burgess, a program analyst at the American Enterprise Institute, who studies veterans running for public office. Carol speaks with both women about why a record number of female combat veterans have decided to run for Congress in the 2018 mid-term elections.
