According to this article, Democrat activists have pushed Angie Craig into supporting President Trump’s impeachment. Ms. Craig hasn’t been a portrait in courage since getting elected. Instead, she’s been part of the Do-Nothing Democrat Caucus since its inception. To her credit, Craig has admitted (in a roundabout way) that President Trump’s economy is working but that government is failing to provide Minnesota’s workers:
We have a major skills gap in the Minnesota job market. Minnesota employees cannot find the skilled workers they need with the right qualifications, and right now job seekers are having a difficult time getting the skills they need for the high-paying jobs that are available today. College isn’t the right path for every student and we shouldn’t be limiting the options of Minnesota students by underfunding or de-emphasizing technical education and career skills programs.
If employers are having a difficult time finding workers with the right qualifications, that’s an endorsement that President Trump’s economy is working. It’s also an indictment that government isn’t doing its job of training students to be productive members of the workforce. But I digress. That’s a topic for another day.
Far-left activists and politicians have been demanding the impeachment of President Trump since the first day he got elected. The problem is that according to a recent poll by Monmouth University only 35% agree that President Trump should be impeached.
University of Minnesota Professor Richard Painter who previously challenged Tina Smith for the US Senate in the Democratic Primary raised some eyebrows when he implied he was unhappy that he didn’t feel that Angie Craig was aggressive enough on impeaching President Trump.
No problem for Angie Craig:
Representative @AngieCraigMN (MN CD2) —winner in a red-to-blue House district— sent me this transcript from her town hall meeting with constituents in which she expresses full support for the House impeachment investigation.
Impeachment. It’s time.

All it took for Angie Craig to admit that she’s pro-impeachment was getting called out by a far left activist. If that isn’t a profile in courage, what is? Angie Craig is an empty pantsuit. How left is Richard Painter? This far left:
It’s not too much to ask your representative in Congress to support a health care system used in every other major democracy (single payer) and to impeach a president who would not be tolerated in any democracy.
That or voters need a third option.

Angie Craig is now admittedly pro-impeachment and pro-single-payer health care. Whoever is the Republicans’ candidate against Craig should remind voters of those 2 things morning, noon and night every day through Election Day, 2020. I’ll buy that CD-2 is shifting demographically. I don’t buy that they’re shifting to a hard-left district that’s as far left as MN-04 or MN-05.
