Bohannan for Congress
Christina Bohannan

At the University of Iowa law school, Bohannan teaches Constitutional Law, Torts, and Intellectual Property. Last year she defeated a 20-year incumbent in State House District 85, and during her first term says she worked for working families, seniors, more investment in public schools, and to help families and small businesses recover from the pandemic. In addition Bohannan says she worked with both parties to crack down on human trafficking and elder abuse.

"I’m running for Congress because there’s so much at stake - and our kids, our families, and our small businesses are worth fighting for. We need less bickering in Washington, and more working together - for a government that works for the people.”
