The Steady State group of former national security professionals is announcing today our endorsement of outstanding Congressional candidate Elaine Luria. Congresswoman Luria shares our values, our commitment to America, and has strong national security experience. The 2022 Congressional elections must return to the House and Senate strong majorities dedicated to safeguarding the rights of all American citizens, rebuilding trust in public service, and restoring confidence in the United States around the globe.

Representative Luria is seeking reelection to her third term as the representative from the Second Congressional District of Virginia. Representative Luria’s professional life has been dedicated to serving the people, with a strong emphasis on national security. She began her public service career as a naval officer and served for two decades retiring at the rank of Commander. She served throughout her career as a nuclear trained, surface warfare officer aboard combatant ships. She is Vice Chair of the House Armed Services Committee and a member of the Veterans Affairs committee.

In addition, Congresswoman Luria’s work on the January 6th Committee demonstrates her commitment to the integrity and security of our democratic republic.


Founded after the 2016 Presidential election, the Steady State now includes over 200 national security professionals. Steady State members include former intelligence officers, specialists in defense policy, diplomats, and Congressional staff. We are pleased to endorse Elaine Luria and other candidates for the House and Senate who will continue to work tirelessly to strengthen America’s democracy and place in the world.
