Lofgren was born Sue Lofgren on December 21, 1947. A lifelong San Francisco Bay Area resident, Lofgren attended Gunn High School in Palo Alto, earned her BA at Stanford University and a law degree at Santa Clara University. She stayed in the San Jose area after graduation, serving eight years as a staff assistant to Congressman Don Edwards. After two years as partner at a law practice in San Jose, she was elected to the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors and served for 13 years.
In 1994, Edwards decided to retire after 32 years in Congress, and Lofgren won the Democratic nomination for the seat. San Jose is so heavily Democratic that her victory was inevitable. Lofgren was only the second representative of the 16th District (Edwards had served since the district's creation in 1963). Read More...
