Prior to her election to the Senate, Senator Duckworth represented the Eighth District of Illinois in the U.S. House of Representatives for two terms—from 2013 to early 2017. Before that, she served as Assistant Secretary of Veterans Affairs under President Barack Obama as well as Director of the Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs from 2006 to 2008.

This event is made possible by general support to CSIS.
