Cori Bush won a stunning primary upset in August over 10-term incumbent Congressmember William Lacy Clay, whose family has represented the St. Louis-area congressional district for more than 50 years. Cori Bush is a single mother and a nurse. She was formerly homeless and was a leader in the 2014 Ferguson uprising over the police killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
