I am Lee Auman, 25 yr old Democrat running for U.S. Congress in Alabama. AMA!
Like the title says, I’m a 25 year old Auburn grad (war eagle!) who won the June 5th primary to become the Democratic nominee for U.S. House of Representatives in Alabama’s 4th Congressional District. In 2016, AL-4 voted for Trump by over 80% -- the highest percentage in the country. My opponent, Robert Aderholt, ran unopposed in 3 out of the last 4 elections. Democracy only works if voters have a choice. I intend to give them one. We’re the epicenter of the opioid crisis (166 prescriptions/100 people), but Aderholt is busy taking money from Pharma while promising that Trump’s economic policy will “fix it.” His most recent legislation would make it harder for same-sex couples to adopt, which both discriminates against the LGBT community AND keeps children from finding safe and loving homes. The people of Alabama deserve a congressman who will work for people, not lobbyists and corporations.

Ask me about my positions, the Trump-Auman voters I meet every day, and/or my love for Star Trek. I’ll be here taking questions all morning. AMA.
