Dr. Zeke Emanuel

President Obama's Special Advisor for Health Policy, Chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania

"For the decade-plus I've known Evelyn, I've watched her establish a professional reputation based on her expertise, her judgment, and her heart. She's built a distinguished career serving America in some of our nation's most consequential roles in Congress and at the Pentagon. Her leadership as Executive Director of the WMD Commission, which addressed America's vulnerability to an infectious threat, is only one of the many qualifications that make Evelyn uniquely suited to follow down the trail Nita Lowey blazed in Congress. She knows how to legislate and has crisis management experience from Congress to the White House Situation Room. Evelyn will be ready on day one. I'm proud to endorse her for Congress."
