The Agenda

Major progress in Minnesota for Angie Craig

With endorsements rolling in and opponents dropping out, Minnesota Congressional candidate Angie Craig’s path to victory has become clear.
Last week, both of her primary challengers dropped out of the race, making Angie the presumptive DFL nominee. Angie would be the first openly LGBTQ person to represent Minnesota in Congress.
Today, Angie received the endorsement from the Minnesota Teamsters Union, citing Angie as a leading advocate for working families in Minnesota . This endorsement only adds to Angie’s increasingly growing list of supporters and endorsements.
Last week, Angie’s campaign announced that she had received the support of nearly all DFL state legislators in her congressional district. Previously, Angie had received support from numerous organizations and individuals, including Senator Al Fraken, EMILY’s List and the Victory Fund.
“I’m overwhelmed by the support that I’ve received, now from almost every DFL member of the CD2 delegation to the Minnesota legislature,” Angie said last week. “I’m excited, not just because of the vote of confidence from these great public servants, but also because these endorsements show that the DFL in the Second District is united and ready to take back this seat in November.”
Angie’s district is winnable for Democrats, and it’s one of the few remaining swing districts. The seat is currently held by anti-LGBTQ Republican Rep. John Kline, who announced that he is not seeking reelection.
