Chris Coons

U.S. Senator, Delaware

Chris Coons has a well-deserved reputation as a pragmatist, but his principles come first. In his first two years as a Senator, he made preserving civil liberties a top priority. He’s fought to stop disenfranchisement in our elections and he’s consistently stood up to protect women’s access to health care. In Delaware, he’s organized numerous job fairs and skills workshops. And in the U.S. Senate, he’s worked to expand the impact of the R&D tax credit. He’s a proud participant of the “It Gets Better” project, an internet-based initiative to prevent LGBT youth suicide. Coons is also a former employee of the I Have a Dream Foundation.
