The NRCC’s latest ad against Angie Craig doesn’t hold anything back. The transcript of the ad starts with a narrator saying “More attacks from Angie Craig, twisting Jason Lewis’ words out of context.

Minnesota’s health insurance crisis

Minnesota’s health insurance crisis was exclusively created by the DFL.

Westrom’s priorities in DC will be: Westrom said he has heard from Minnesotans again and again about their concerns with the federal government. He has heard about […]
