36 minutes: Richard Ojeda served a long and decorated career in the United States military, and is an emerging political figure in Democratic politics. Ojeda enlisted as a soldier in the military in 1989, and was selected to serve as a Lieutenant Colonel prior to retiring from the military in 2013. Over the course of his 24 year military career, Ojeda served at Fort Bragg intermittently with several deployments to South Korea, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

Following his military career, Richard ran for the West Virginia State Senate in 2016. Richard won his State Senate seat, despite being brutally attacked on the campaign trail. Richard went on to lead a campaign to legalize medical cannabis in West Virginia, maintained two pay raises for correctional officers, and was an outspoken advocate for the 2018 teachers strike. In 2018, Ojeda ran for Congress in West Virginia’s 3rd congressional district. Although he did not win the seat, he received 44% of the vote, 32% more than the Democrat in the previous race. Richard has three children and has been married to his wife, Kelly, for 24 years.

In 2019, Richard launched a daily webcast, Ojeda Live, which is broadcast via Facebook from both the Richard Ojeda page and No Dem Left Behind.
