Event description

Description

Join The Texas Tribune in person or on our livestream for a conversation with MJ Hegar, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, which Texas Tribune co-founder and CEO Evan Smith will moderate.

Hegar is a retired Air Force officer and recipient of the Purple Heart. In 2012, she successfully sued the Department of Defense to repeal the Ground Combat Exclusion Policy, which prevented women from serving in combat positions. Hegar announced her candidacy for the U.S. Senate in April.
