Congressional Progressive Caucus Endorses Angie Craig For Congress

The 72 United States Representatives in the CPC comprise the largest single caucus within the House Democratic Caucus

Eagan, MN— Angie Craig, who is seeking the DFL endorsement in Minnesota’s open Second Congressional District, today announced the endorsement of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Craig’s endorsement was among the first of the cycle for the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

First Vice Chair of the CPC Rep. Mark Pocan (D, WI-02) announced the endorsement, “The Congressional Progressive Caucus is proud to endorse Angie Craig for Congress. We know that she will work tirelessly for our shared progressive values of creating economic security for all, protecting our civil rights and liberties, promoting global peace and security, and advancing environmental protections and energy independence. As a Wisconsinite, I’m personally excited at the prospect of electing another colleague with common-sense, progressive, Midwestern values.”

Angie Craig said, “I want to go to Congress to fight for opportunity for all families. We must ensure that every family has access to high-quality public education, debt-free post-secondary education after high school, and meaningful good-paying jobs once they graduate. And we must keep our promises to our seniors. I am gratified and humbled to earn the endorsement of 72 future colleagues and committed public servants that have already dedicated themselves to these same goals.”
