Bottom Line

This race is a rematch of the very close 2016 race. In that year, Representative Lewis won his seat by just 7,000 votes. The result was surprising partly because Democrat Angie Craig heavily outspent Lewis.

Four of Minnesota’s eight Congressional Districts start the fall campaign season in toss-up status. It is the most competitive state in the nation.
