As election season heats up across the country, certain races have become zeroed in on as people realize the importance of their vote and get energized about spreading the message of their given candidate(s). One race that has turned a great deal of heads is the United States Senate seat recently vacated by Al Franken and currently held by his replacement, Tina Smith. Although Smith intends to run for election of the seat, Karin Housley has stepped up as a challenger to the far-left appointee. Running for a seat held by the opposite party is not always easy, but Housley has managed to rally supporters from all across the blue state. As she gains more popularity, the future begins to look brighter and brighter for not only Minnesota Republicans, but people across the United States who are ready to see a change. I sat down with Karin and asked her a few questions to get a better look at who our hopeful Senator is, both inside and outside of politics.
