Eagan, MN – Jason Lewis for Congress Campaign Manager Becky Alery released the following statement following what was supposed to be the fourth debate in the Second Congressional District, before Angie Craig pulled out.
“Today marked the fourth debate in the race for Minnesota’s Second Congressional District, and one thing is clear. Jason Lewis won.
“Okay, okay. Sure, Jason Lewis was the only candidate who actually showed up after Angie Craig bailed, but the overall outcome was the same as we’ve seen in the last three debates: Jason Lewis succeeded in sharing his accomplishments in his first term and how he is going to continue to move this country forward. And Angie Craig failed to share where she stands. Literally. Because she didn’t even show up.
“Minnesotans want a representative who can listen to them AND share their policy positions, like Jason Lewis.
“Minnesotans want a representative who will be an independent voice, like Jason Lewis.
“And, Minnesotans want a representative who will show up for them, like Jason Lewis.
“Today, Angie Craig proved she is exactly what we’ve known all along. A wholly manufactured candidate, handpicked by the DCCC and the Washington elite to vote as they say when they say it. Thankfully Jason Lewis is and will continue to be an independent voice for Minnesota.”
