Joan Growe, Secretary of State

"I am proud to endorse Margaret Anderson Kelliher to represent Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District. Margaret is a trailblazer, experienced coalition builder and fierce advocate for Minnesota women and families.

Throughout her service to Minnesotans, Margaret has demonstrated that leveling the playing field and creating opportunities for women yields prosperity for everyone. As only the second woman to serve as Speaker of the Minnesota House of Representatives, Margaret repeatedly stood up for women’s reproductive freedom despite having an overwhelmingly anti-choice caucus in the legislature. As President and CEO of Minnesota High Tech Association for the past eight years, Margaret has made it her priority to advance economic opportunity for young women through Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers.

Margaret’s leadership experience and ability to bring together a diverse group of people to get things done, coupled with her vision for a more equitable and just future for the 5th District, uniquely qualify her for this office in this very perilous moment in our nation’s history."
