Laura Moser is a leader and organizer, which is how she’ll win against John Culberson.

Following the 2016 election, she founded Daily Action, a text-messaging service that allows people to engage directly in the political process. Daily Action has tapped into demand from 300,000 people to take direct political action daily all over the country. Daily Action has notched real victories, like pressuring the House GOP to walk back their plans to gut the Congressional Ethics Office. Daily Action members also placed a record number of calls to senators regarding Trump’s terrible choice for Secretary of Labor, who eventually withdrew his name from consideration. Daily Action callers have led the fight against the repeal of Obamacare: The service connected more than a quarter of a million calls to protect the Affordable Care Act.

Laura was born and raised in Southside Place and graduated from West University Elementary and St. John’s School. She attended Amherst College and subsequently worked as an editor, author, and national journalist with bylines in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Slate, Vogue, the Jewish Daily Forward, and many other publications. Laura is also the co-author of four young-adult novels and of many nonfiction books, several of them New York Times bestsellers. After eight years in Washington, Laura now lives in West University Place with her husband, Arun. Laura and Arun have two young children, Leo and Claudia, and three rescue cats.
