Republican Tyler Kistner announces rematch bid against U.S. Rep. Angie Craig in Minnesota

Republican Tyler Kistner is launching a rematch bid against Democratic U.S. Rep. Angie Craig. Driving the news: “Last election we were one of the closest elections in the country. Next election, we’re one of the top races in the country," Kistner said in an announcement video released to Axios.Last November, Kistner, a Marine veteran from Prior Lake, lost to Craig by about 2 percentage points in the south metro's 2nd congressional district. The race was upended by a legal fight over how to proceed after the September death of a Legal Marijuana Now Party candidate who was also on the ballot. Be smart: The upcoming redrawing of political maps will determine how competitive the rematch will be.If the district grows or moves out to the south, Republicans' chances will likely improve. Of note: Kistner won a five-way GOP primary to take on Craig. It's not yet known how large the field will be in the 2022 election.
