Last November, Democratic healthcare executive Angie Craig was widely expected to convert then-retiring Rep. John Kline’s (R) politically marginal southeastern Minneapolis suburban US House district. But, former radio talk show host Jason Lewis and the GOP voting base came to a different conclusion and Craig went down to a close defeat despite raising and spending almost $4 million. This week, Ms. Craig announced she will try again, this time attempting to unseat Rep. Jason Lewis (R-Woodbury). Mr. Lewis surprised most people with his strength as a candidate and was one of the most under-rated winners of the 2016 election cycle. The new Congressman has raised well over $550,000 in his first two quarters as an incumbent, so his campaign will be much stronger this time around.
