Racine, WI – Former Obama White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough today endorsed Democrat Roger Polack in the race for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional seat. Polack, a Racine native, a national security expert who served in the Obama administration, and an attorney, announced his candidacy in January.
“As President Barack Obama‘s former Chief of Staff, I am proud to endorse Roger Polack for Congress in Wisconsin’s First District. Roger worked on some of the most pressing national security issues throughout the Obama Administration, including deploying to Afghanistan multiple times as a civilian to stop funding to the Taliban and implementing the Iran nuclear agreement,” said McDonough. “His dedication to public service and to keeping America safe makes him the right choice to represent the people of Southeastern Wisconsin in Congress.”
About Roger Polack
Roger Polack grew up in Racine, one of four children in a blue-collar family. After graduating from Horlick High School, he put himself through UW-Madison and ultimately law school at Georgetown University, studying law at night while working on some of the most pressing national security issues our country faces during the day. He served in the Bush and Obama administrations as an intelligence analyst and then a senior policy advisor. Polack deployed to Afghanistan multiple times to take on the Taliban, shut down their financing pipeline, and expose corruption in Afghanistan. He also worked to hold China’s feet to the fire on investment and national security issues and to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Since then, he’s served as an attorney focusing on public international law and investigations. He’s running for Congress because he wants to continue serving our country and ensure that every family, just like his own, has the opportunity to build a better life for themselves.
