Perkins is a U.S. Army veteran and graduate of West Point Academy who served three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, earning the the rank of captain and the bronze star. He graduated from Harvard Law School after serving.

Cassidy says he has multiple challengers and will run on his record to keep the seat he has held since 2015.
