Democrat Angie Craig has defeated incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Jason Lewis to win election to Minnesota's 2nd Congressional District.
This was a rematch of the 2016 race when Lewis beat Craig 47 percent to 45.2 percent. Republicans have held this seat for 69 of the last 77 years. Minnesota's 2nd District has garnered national attention, and it's a seat Democrats were pouring money in to flip.
This campaign has been about listening to and showing up for the families of #MN02. I’m honored, humbled and grateful for the opportunity to represent our district. I will never forget where I come from and who I work for. Thank you! Now let’s get to work. #TeamAngie #MN02— Angie Craig (@AngieCraigMN) November 7, 2018
Incumbent @RepJasonLewis concedes in a tight US Congressional race by highlighting the accomplishments of the Republican led US Congress, saying the republicans may have lost the house tonight but they’ll keep fighting: “the battle endures...” #mnvotes— Courtney Godfrey (@courtneygodfrey) November 7, 2018
