A public health expert committed to expanding access to high-quality health care and protecting public lands, Neumann is running to ensure that Montanans can rely on pro-science representation in Congress. Neumann received her master’s degree in public health in 2005 and has dedicated her career to addressing policy issues facing Montanans.

The winner of November’s general election will be the first congressperson for MT-01 since the state condensed its representation into one at-large district twenty years ago. With a primary election victory, Neumann will likely face Ryan Zinke, who from 2017 to 2019 served as the most anti-science secretary in the history of the U.S. Department of the Interior. Under Zinke’s leadership, the Interior Department censored references in government research to human contributions to climate change and rolled back protections for public lands and endangered species — putting the profits of oil and gas companies above the interests of the environment and Montanans. In 2018, Zinke incorrectly claimed the validity of human contributions to climate change is “still being disputed.”

When COVID hit, Cora founded We Are Montana to get personal protective equipment, life-saving information, financial aid, and vaccines out to Montanans so our economy could re-open as quickly and safely as possible. She worked with small business owners to help them keep the lights on, raised money to support rural county commissioners and health workers, and centered her work on delivering tangible results to rural counties.
