Eagan, MN – Today, Angie Craig, who is challenging Rep. Jason Lewis in Minnesota’s Second Congressional District, released the following statement in response to Rep. Jason Lewis's newly revealed racist remarks during past radio appearances.

"I’m hearing these newly revealed words today for the first time along with the rest of the country. These remarks from Jason Lewis are shocking and don’t represent who we are as Minnesotans. I’m appalled by the belief system these comments reveal and for his failure to hold himself accountable. Our elected officials should be held to the highest standard and Lewis has failed that test time and again.

"The voters will decide who they want to represent them this November, and meanwhile I will continue to fight for all Minnesota families."

Craig is a former journalist and healthcare leader who lives with her wife and four sons in Eagan. Please visit angiecraig.com to learn more.
