We Need To Win CD2 - We Need Angie Craig

In CD2 in Minnesota, these are the numbers that I cannot ignore....
......................................... Raised........... On Hand
Jason Lewis (incumbent)....$1,048,000.......$717,591
Angie Craig ....................... $550,968.........$432,509
Jeff Erdmann ......................$104,792.........$11,431

I think all Democrats agree that we need to get big money and corporations out of politics. But in order to do that we must elect people who will follow that through. Jeff Erdmann cannot compete here. He simply cannot. Even if he believes that his message is a winner, he has no means to get that out to the public on a large enough scale. Maybe, just maybe, he could make it work in a legislative campaign - but a Congressional one? Not possible.

We have had good Democratic candidates in the past. They just had no means to compete because they did not have the resources. Even Angie Craig will have a tougher time keeping up with the GOP protections that will work to keep Jason Lewis in office.

This 2018 election is important and winnable. We have to have our best in the competition. We can't have pie in the sky naievete. There is just too much at stake.

We need Angie Craig. We need her experience. We need her abilities. And yes, we need the money she can raise.

Angie Craig MUST be the endorsed candidate in CD2.
