Rep. Angie Craig, D, 2nd District: "After working with the administration to ensure the new US-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement protected American workers and did not raise drug prices, I’m proud to announce we have reached a final agreement that supports farmers and bolsters our economy," Craig said on Twitter. "I plan to vote yes on USMCA."
Rep. Angie Craig said that after she leaves Congress, she’s never going to become a lobbyist. And if she has her way, neither will any other member. On Friday, Craig introduced the Halt Unchecked Member Benefits with Lobbying Elimination — or HUMBLE — Act.
If constituents didn't get a chance to ask a question in Northfield, they can try again next month, or the month after, or at any of the monthly town halls Craig has planned for her district. It's an honor," she said, "to listen."
In an era of political tribalism, Democratic U.S. Rep. Angie Craig strives to be bipartisan. The congresswoman from Minnesota’s 2nd District has notched some early wins in her first months in Congress by keeping to her campaign promise to work across the aisle. In her first 100 days in Washington, she introduced four bills and amendments and co-sponsored 93 more. Sixty-one percent of the bills she co-sponsored were bipartisan.
While we are on opposite sides of the aisle in Congress, we want many of the same things for our neighbors, including timely and affordable health care, safer communities or brighter futures for our children. Sometimes, we just have different ideas on how to get there.
