Angie Craig Launches Re-Election Campaign in Minnesota’s Newly Drawn 2nd Congressional District

Impressive turnout indicates Democratic enthusiasm remains strong

Burnsville, MN – This weekend, Rep. Angie Craig launched her campaign for reelection in Minnesota’s newly drawn 2nd Congressional District in front of a fired-up crowd of supporters. On the heels of the completion of Minnesota’s once-in-a-decade redistricting process, the event kicks off Minnesota’s political convention season. Sen. Karla Bigham (DFL-Cottage Grove), Sen. Jim Carlson (DFL-Eagan) and Dakota County Commissioner Laurie Halverson introduced Rep. Craig.

“The unbelievable turnout here today goes to show just how motivated Democrats are this cycle,” Craig said. “That’s because when you elect a Democrat after enduring 70 years of Republican leadership, you notice when infrastructure improvements come to your district, healthcare costs go down and small businesses and working families take priority over corporate interests. The folks here today know we can take nothing for granted this upcoming November. We have too much left to do.”

The newly-drawn district will include all of Dakota and Scott counties, Le Sueur, and additional portions of Washington and Rice counties. Goodhue and Wabasha counties will be part of MN-01 in the November general election.
