Lauren Baer

FL-18 (D)
Current office holder: Brian Mast(R)
As a mother and daughter, Lauren is committed to building a bright future for our children and protecting our seniors. She was raised in the 18th District, calls Palm Beach Garden home, and believes that her constituents deserve a representative who will work across the aisle and on their behalf. Prior to running for Congress, Lauren was an attorney and foreign policy expert, acting as a senior advisor to Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, and to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power. Lauren holds a B.A. from Harvard College, a J.D. from Yale Law School, and an MPhil from the University of Oxford, where she was a Marshall Scholar. She is also a proud graduate of Palm Beach County public schools. When she wins this seat, she will make history as the first woman to be in a same-sex marriage while also serving in Congress.
