Angie Craig’s district declared ‘toss-up’

In a mid-March update of its Congressional seat forecast, Cook Political Report upgraded the race for Minnesota’s District 2 Congressional seat from “leans Republican” to “toss-up,” a boost to Victory spotlight candidate Angie Craig.
Angie is running to become the first openly LGBTQ person to represent her state in Congress. Outgoing Rep. John Kline was an opponent of LGBTQ equality measures, once blocking an anti-discrimination amendment from being added to a bill he was shepherding as chair of the House Education and Workforce Committee.
“This objective, nonpartisan ranking provides some of the best insight into the state of Congressional races,” said Political Director Mike McCall said in an email to Victory supporters. “Angie’s upgrade speaks volumes to who she is as a candidate.”
The district’s toss-up status means that it will likely become one of the most expensive races in the country, as both Democrats and Republicans see the opportunity to seize the seat.
