Why you should support Angie Craig

I’m strongly considering another run for Congress because this district needs a representative willing to listen to and work for them. Jason Lewis has to go. His votes to throw 24 million Americans off of their health insurance and make seniors pay five times the cost for health coverage are proof enough of that. 

Growing up, my family didn’t always have health insurance. I remember watching the bills pile up when my little sister got sick. This fight is deeply personal for me. I won’t quit fighting until every family in our country has healthcare they can afford. The size of your wallet shouldn’t determine whether you can take your child to the doctor in the richest nation on earth. 

We came up slightly short in 2016, but after the past few months of watching Jason vote against families in our district time and time again, I know I have the energy and will to take him on and win in 2018. Remember, more than 53 percent of the district voted for me or the third party candidate in 2016.

I’m currently crisscrossing the 2nd, talking with voters and activists at meetings for the DFL, Our Revolution, Indivisible, and Stand Up, to name a few. I'm also talking to voters who didn't vote for me in 2016 to better understand their concerns. I’ll be holding a handful of town hall meetings because our Congressman won’t. The people of the 2nd Congressional District deserve a Member of Congress who will listen to them even when we don't agree.

Over the next few months, I plan to listen and fight alongside you. My wife and I - along with our four sons - will then make a final decision together. Until then, I hope you’ll help me send Jason Lewis a strong message by pledging your support if I do take him on in 2018.
