“I know I’m just getting started, and I’m hoping that I’ll be able to have a life, a family, and a career,” said Bash, who moved to Los Angeles to work in television and film in the late 1990s.
“And then I’ll try to keep on living.
It’s been a crazy ride.”
In addition to her family, Bash, 31, and her husband, Mark, have a two-year-old son, Luke.
Bash, the daughter of former Republican U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), has become a favorite of many Democrats for her work in the Senate and has been a vocal advocate for women’s rights.
Bash also serves as president of the National Coalition for Women, an organization that seeks to expand access to reproductive health services for women, including abortion, and supports the rights of immigrants and refugees.
Her family is a part of the #OscarsSoWhite campaign, a nationwide movement that promotes diversity through awards and honors for individuals and organizations that have worked to reduce racial and gender disparities in the academy.
“My family has always been very supportive,” Bash said.
“I just think the last two or three years have just been so whirlwind.
We had a baby and we had a kid and then a baby, and then we got married.
And I was just overwhelmed.
It has been really tough.”
The family is not the only one facing challenges in the current climate.
The presidential election is just two months away.
The former first lady, senator and first lady Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State Colin Powell, former CIA Director James Woolsey, former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett and the late former Sen. Al Gore (D.-Maine) are all vying for the Democratic nomination.
The New York Times recently reported that a group of the former presidents had been meeting in New York to discuss the challenges they are facing.
“The Clintons are trying to be very honest about the challenges that we face,” said former White Senate aide Matt Mook, who served as deputy national security adviser for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.
“There are so many other issues that we need to address that have been neglected and that are the most pressing issues facing our country right now.”
In an interview with CNN last week, Clinton said, “I’m not worried about the next four years, because there’s so much that we can do to help people get back on their feet.”
She said the election has been difficult, but added, “We are so close.”
She added that she and her family are “doing everything we can” to “make sure that everyone has a chance to make a difference.”
