Lauren Ashcraft

Challenging Maloney

Carolyn Maloney was already up against three candidates in the 2020 primary: 32-year-old lawyer and advocate for sexual harassment survivors Erica Vladimer, 30-year-old JPMorgan Chase project manager and comedian Lauren Ashcraft, and 36-year-old housing activist and urban planner Peter Harrison. Then, former Obama campaign staffer and lawyer Suraj Patel, 35, who in 2018 mounted a strong challenge to Maloney, announced last week that he would run against her again in 2020.

Ashcraft and Harrison belong to the Democratic Socialists of America. And although Vladimer, who once worked for the conservative Independent Democratic Conference (IDC) for years, is not a member of DSA, she praised the organization for embodying “what it means to lift up grassroots activists and advocates into the electoral position” and said she would seek DSA’s endorsement.
