DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján today announced that Kara Eastman has earned a spot on the DCCC’s highly competitive Red to Blue program.Eastman has worked hard in her community to earn a spot on Red to Blue by surpassing aggressive goals for grassroots engagement, local support, campaign organization and fundraising.

“As the founder of a nationally recognized nonprofit, Kara Eastman has the skills, experience and tenacity to get things done for Nebraska families,” said DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján. “Not only did Kara help provide thousands of Nebraska families with sustainable, safe and affordable housing, but she created jobs in the process.
