A Democratic Navy veteran says she has plans to challenge newly minted U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), a former Navy SEAL.
Elisa Cardnell, 32, filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday to challenge Crenshaw for Texas’s 2nd Congressional District, the Houston Chronicle reported Friday.
Cardnell spent five years on active duty in the Navy, rising to the rank of lieutenant and serving as an anti-submarine warfare officer, the newspaper noted. She left the Navy reserves in 2018 after six years and is currently a science teacher.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Before 2016, I tried to stay out of politics, especially since as a member of the military I viewed my role as necessarily nonpartisan — at least in public life,” Cardnell said. “But now I feel that I have to do something, and my entire career of serving my country and my community has led me to this point.”
