Craig will face Rep. Jason Lewis after her endorsement from the DFL
Burnsville, MN – Today, Angie Craig, who is challenging Rep. Jason Lewis in Minnesota’s Second Congressional District, was unanimously endorsed by the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party.
“I am humbled by the support and vote of confidence from the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party and I want to thank the party for their endorsement,” said Craig. “With the party united, I know we will win in November. We will win by standing up for our values: access to affordable healthcare for all, investments in education so that our prosperity can be passed onto the next generation, and campaign finance and government reforms that end the dark money in politics and put an end to politicians who benefit from their service to you.
“This district deserves real representation that will listen to the concerns of voters. Jason Lewis didn’t listen to voters when he voted for the Washington tax scam giveaway to big corporations while adding trillions to the deficit. He didn’t listen to voters when he voted to raise health care costs for Minnesotans and those with pre-existing conditions. And he refuses to listen to the many residents of this district who feel left behind by a very broken Washington that puts special interests ahead of everyday people.
“I want to thank Jeff Erdmann for the spirited endorsement campaign. We may not have always seen eye to eye on the path, but we were always united behind the same goal. And now, together, we can return this district to the voters.”
Craig is a former journalist and healthcare leader who lives with her wife and four sons in Eagan. Raised by a single mother in a mobile home park, Angie saw as her family struggled to pay healthcare bills and later worked two jobs to pay her way through college. She later went on to lead a workforce of 16,000 employees at a major Minnesota manufacturer and is running to ensure every Minnesotans has their own shot at the American Dream.
