Elissa Slotkin on Her Mission in Congress: Homeland Over Party, and 'We Cannot Be in Endless Wars'

Meet the New Congress

Elissa Slotkin became an integral part in the Democratic takeover of the House on Nov. 6 by winning her seat in the Michigan 8th — a district that went for Trump in 2016. In a new interview with Roll Call, Slotkin discusses her history as a former CIA analyst working for both Democrats and Republicans, and her philosophy of reaching across the aisle to benefit her constituents and the country as a whole.

Correction: A previous version of this video stated that Slotkin won Michigan's 7th District; she won Michigan's 8th District.
