Racine, WI – Democrat Roger Polack, a Racine native and national security expert who served in the Obama administration, today released a new digital ad in his campaign to represent Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District. The ad focuses on Polack’s upbringing in a working-class household in Racine and his decade of service as a civilian intelligence officer in Afghanistan and for the U.S. Department of the Treasury in the Obama administration.
A recent poll shows a competitive race in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District. That same poll showed Joe Biden and Donald Trump tied in a district that Trump won by more than 10 points in 2016.
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.
