Meet Ruben

Ruben Gallego is the son of an immigrant mother from Colombia and an immigrant father from Mexico. He grew up poor in Chicago raised by his mother along with his three sisters. Ruben deployed to Iraq in 2005 where his company saw some of the hardest fighting of the war. He was elected to the Arizona State House in 2010 and the U.S. House in 2014 where he has served as a voice for veterans and working families. Ruben is married and lives in South Phoenix with his wife Sydney, son Michael and soon-to-be newborn.

Early years

Early Years

He can trace his drive to succeed to the first night he slept on the floor in the apartment his mother got for him and his sisters after his father left. Lying there, he remembers thinking “my life sucked and I am not going to stand for that.”

Growing up poor, he took advantage of the things Democrats championed and the people of our country provided: Pell Grants and school lunch programs to name two. Those helping hands gave him (and people like him) a debt of gratitude he worked to pay back through service — first in the Marines, and now in Congress.

College

College

After high school, Ruben Gallego went to Harvard where he cleaned other students’ bathrooms, worked at a meat packing plant and was a reservist during college to afford school. He later used his money saved while fighting in Iraq to pay off the $15,000 he had left in debt.

Military Service

Military Service

Ruben deployed to Iraq as a United States Marine Infantryman in 2005 where his company saw some of the hardest fighting and the heaviest casualties of the Iraq War, losing 22 Marines and a Navy Corpsman in eight months.

Ruben wrote a book about his time overseas titled They Called Us “Lucky” — a story about his time in Iraq and the people he served with from blue-collar towns, immigrant households and the Navajo Nation. It also detailed how he has dealt with PTSD since coming back from Iraq.

Public Service

Public Service

Ruben’s military service motivated him to seek public office, where he has worked tirelessly to ensure that members of the military are never again sent into harm’s way without a plan for winning the fight and caring for those service members when they return home.

Ruben got his start in politics working on ballot initiatives in Phoenix and went on to serve as a Chief of Staff for a member of the Phoenix City Council and Vice Chair of the Arizona Democratic Party. He was elected to the Arizona State House in 2010 and to the United States House of Representatives in 2014.

Priorities

Ruben has never backed down from fighting for Arizona families. As a son of immigrants, he understands what it means to achieve the American dream, and in Congress, he works to make sure Arizonans can achieve theirs.

Kyrsten Sinema betrayed Arizona families.

Time and time again, Kyrsten Sinema put her own interests ahead of getting things done for the people of Arizona. She had accepted huge campaign contributions from the wealthy and well-connected and in turn blocked legislation to raise the minimum wage, lower the cost of prescription drugs, expand voting rights and more.

It is time to replace her with a Senator who will put the people of Arizona first.

Remember this vote?

Kyrsten Sinema enjoys voting against raising the minimum wage in 2020.
