VoteVets PAC Endorses Maggie Goodlander for Congress

The largest progressive group of Veterans in America, VoteVets PAC, is today endorsing Maggie Goodlander to be the next Member of Congress from New Hampshire’s 2nd congressional district. 

“Maggie has a long history of serving this nation, both in the Navy and the Department of Justice, and in these unprecedented times, people like Maggie, and her background and experiences, are the exact kind of people we need in Congress,” said Travis Tazelaar, Political Director of VoteVets PAC. “Maggie has already stood up and fought tirelessly to protect our democracy and she will do so again in Congress. She will be a champion for veterans, service members, health care, our democracy, our freedoms, and all Granite Staters in Congress. Put simply, Maggie is a doer and knows how to get things done. And that is what Congress and the nation needs right now. We’re proud to endorse her.”

Maggie has dedicated her life to public service. She began her career working as a foreign policy advisor where she helped write a landmark sanctions law against Vladimir Putin and strengthen democracy around the world. She went on to serve as an Intelligence Officer in the United States Navy Reserve for over a decade. Maggie attended law school and clerked at the United State Supreme Court. After, Maggie returned to New Hampshire to fight for the most vulnerable Granite Staters, and to teach constitutional law at UNH and Dartmouth. She also served on the boards of the NH Women’s Foundation, NH Legal Assistance, the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire, and the Rudman Center Advisory Board.

Maggie served as counsel in the first impeachment of former President Donald Trump. And after President Biden was elected, Maggie went to the U.S. Department of Justice. There, she took on corporate monopolies as a Deputy Attorney General in the Justice Department.

Most recently, Maggie served as a senior advisor at the White House where she led President Biden’s Unity Agenda for the nation, dedicated to solving five big challenges: beating the opioid epidemic, tackling the mental health crisis, holding Big Tech accountable, meeting our sacred obligation to veterans, and ending cancer as we know it.
