Mike Siegel is a civil rights attorney and former public school teacher who is running for the U.S. House in Texas's 10th District. His race is an important opportunity to not only elect a progressive to Congress, but also flip a seat from red to blue.

After spending his career fighting to give everyone a fair shot at success, he is now ready to take that fight to Congress.
