Angie Craig represents Minnesota’s Second Congressional District. She is fighting to build a Minnesota for all of us - where every member of every family gets a fair shot at an outstanding education, the career training or retraining for a good job, and a better life.
Angie grew up in a family with lots of love, but also plenty of hardship. She was raised by a single mother in a mobile home park, who raised three kids and earned her teaching degree. At times, her family didn’t have health insurance, and she watched as her mom struggled to pay the bills that piled up on the kitchen table after her little sister needed hospital care.
Like her mom, Angie worked two jobs to put herself through state college with help from student loans. After graduation, she became a newspaper reporter. She moved to Minnesota where she worked for more than 15 years to eventually lead 16,000 employees as head of Global Human Resources for a major Minnesota manufacturer. Today, she is the mother of four amazing young men - three in college and one in high school.
In Congress, Angie will fight to make sure career and skills education is an opportunity for every young person; to lower the cost of healthcare and to work toward a solution that expands healthcare to many more Americans; for infrastructure investments that benefit our communities – big and small; and for policies that reward people for their hard work – especially family farmers and small business owners.
