*RootsAction searches the country for the very best Congressional candidates* who will have a major, positive, national impact, who have a shot at winning, and who are challenging the worst incumbents. Wow, have we found one for everyone to support!
*Jamaal Bowman lives in New York's solidly Democratic 16th District bordering AOC's* (from the Bronx to Westchester) - and he should be supported no matter where you live in the United States. Bowman is an educator who's drafted a remarkable plan for a New Deal for primary education, and who supports making college part of public education by taxing Wall Street. Bowman backs major investments in housing that would put an end to homelessness. His plan for a Green New Deal is so serious that it includes demilitarization. Bowman backs Medicare for All, repealing the 1994 crime bill, abolishing ICE, and a wide range of smart policies laid out clearly on his website.

*Bowman means what he proposes and has a rock-solid answer to the how-ya-gonna-pay-for-it question that's also part of how he plans to defeat Rep. Eliot Engel. *Here's Bowman in his own words:
""My opponent, Representative Eliot Engel, and I do not share the same foreign policy vision. He voted for one of the worst policy disasters of my lifetime -- an unjust and costly 2 trillion dollar war in Iraq. He voted against President Obama's signature foreign policy achievement which put a lid on Iran's nuclear program. He went on CNN this past year and said he didn't want to tie Trump's hands when it came to strikes on Iran. He was one of only 16 House Democrats in 2016 to vote against an amendment that blocked the transfer of cluster bombs to Saudi Arabia which has been relentlessly dropping them on Yemeni civilians.
"My opponent accepts donations from corporations and arms manufacturers like Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and Raytheon. He supports a hawkish and costly foreign policy agenda instead of focusing on the communities in our district that have been neglected for far too long.
"We must *dramatically reduce the Pentagon's budget *over the next ten years, end the forever wars, and rebuild a diplomacy-first approach through the State Department. We have been in Afghanistan for 19 years, in Iraq for 17 years, and in Syria for five years. Congress must reassert its authority to bring our troops home."
