US Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson looks back on a 30-year career in politics

Democratically US Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson has served in House District 30, covering much of Dallas and parts of southern Dallas County, since her first election to Congress in 1992.

Johnson spoke to C-SPAN to reflect on everything she’s accomplished, from supporting women in STEM to what she expects most from her position.

“I hope it means more for the future than for me. That women can truthfully say that women can be part of science policy making,” Johnson said.

“Yes, the science section is open to you,” she added. “And who is more willing than someone who gives birth to everyone else?”

What she will miss most about her service in Congress, Johnson said, is that she will miss the tough work schedule.

Johnson is replaced by the Democrat Jasmine Crockettwho most recently served as a member of the Texas House of Representatives for the 100th District.
