Mike Honda, former Congressman for San Jose, Ca.  Former school teacher and principal.  And he was voted out after many years for a person funded by Silcon Valley companies.

I think we've been reasonably lucky in Minnesota. Keith Ellison, one of our reps, is a stand-up guy, and Amy Klobuchar, one of our senators, is also pretty good. Al Franken, our other senator, is good in my opinion. And our governor, Mark Dayton, is honest and forthright for the most part.

Was just scanning this thread that started last year.

May need a recount on the Franken comment.

Al Franken MUST resign.... MUST PEOPLE!!! Women are under fire!!! And we need an AUTHENTIC voice!!! 

Keith Ellison would be the best to fill this position.

I'm a fan of Tammy Duckworth, IL. Except I get the DuckTales intro song stuck in my head every time I hear about her.

I like Krysten Sinema and Ruben Gallego from my state of Arizona. 
Krysten is already in the House, but is potentially running to be the Dem nominee in the race for current Sen. Flake's seat.

David Price, representing North Carolina's 4th District. He is quite left-wing, but that is the political viewpoint of the majority of his district (as evidenced by >70% votes for the last several cycles). His best trait is he isn't afraid to tell his constituents they are being unrealistic. Back when Congress compromised on things, he often was part of that negotiation.
