Angie Craig was elected to represent Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District in 2018. She is the first LGBTQ woman to represent Minnesota in Congress.
She is fighting for working families - and for a Minnesota where every member of every family gets a fair shot. That means an opportunity for an outstanding education, career skills and technical training for 21st century jobs of the future, and a better life. She will work with anyone to improve the lives and opportunities of Minnesotans.
Rep. Craig learned the value of hard work from her mother, a single mom who raised three children while earning her teaching degree. She too worked two jobs to help put herself through college. Years later, she moved to Minnesota and fell in love with the strong communities and quality of life. She and her wife Cheryl Greene have four sons – three in college or tech school and one in high school. They live in Eagan, Minnesota. She is a small business investor, the former head of Global HR for a major Minnesota manufacturer, and a former newspaper reporter.
In Congress, Rep. Craig is fighting to make sure career skills and technical education is an option 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. She plans to pursue these priorities through her appointments on the House Committees on Agriculture and Transportation & Infrastructure.
