In 2018, Rep. Kelly Moller ran for one of the most competitive Minnesota House seats in the state. She challenged an anti-choice incumbent who had narrowly won election in 2016 by a margin of just 125 votes out of more than 22,000 cast. Rep. Moller defeated him by more than 3,000 votes — FLIPPING a seat in the Minnesota House.

During her first term in the Minnesota House, she’s demonstrated incredible leadership as an advocate for survivors of sexual assault and gender-based violence. We sat down with Rep. Moller to learn about what inspired her to run, the importance of pro-choice women’s representation, her top priorities as a legislator, and her advice for future candidates.
