One of the few Democrats representing Florida, Corrine Brown is the delegate from the 3rd congressional district, holding the office since her first election in 1993. Brown’s career began simply enough, with politics simply a distant dream. Beginning her professional life as an educator, she soon garnered a law degree and moved to the Florida House of Representatives. Upon obtaining federal office, she became a highly important figure in the liberal side of Congress. Among her most important constituents are the religious community, the sugar industry and organized labor. During her tenure she has sponsored important legislation about civil rights and helped regulate foreign relations. Today Brown serves on the Transportation and Veterans’ Affairs committees.

In her bid for reelection, Representative Brown focuses on a number of issues relevant to the average Floridian. Most notably amongst these are clean air, global security and education reform.
