The bipartisan group has backed some of the veterans who've had big victories in primaries this year, often running against party establishment candidates: Amy McGrath, a former Marine fighter pilot, bested a well-funded local mayor for the Democratic nomination for a Kentucky House seat; Michael Waltz, a much-decorated former Army Green Beret who served in Afghanistan, is running for the Republican nomination for a Florida House seat despite having taken a "Never Trump" position in 2016 .The Democrats should instead become a true governing party, says Moulton, under a "big tent" that can embrace progressive candidates such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a former community organizer who won a Democratic House nomination in a liberal New York City district and Mikie Sherrill, a former Navy helicopter pilot who won a Democratic House nomination in a more centrist New Jersey district.To encourage Democratic veterans to run, Moulton has formed a political-action committee called "Serve America" that has raised about $2.75 million and backed 36 veterans for Congress and state and local races.
