Kelly Morrison is running to represent Minnesota’s 3rd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. She is a 6th-generation Minnesotan who has deep roots in the state and the MN-03 community. Morrison has spent decades serving people, as she spent 20 years working as an OB-GYN. She first ran for office in 2018 after Donald Trump was elected, where she was elected to the Minnesota House and then the Minnesota Senate. In the Minnesota legislature, Senator Morrison has a proven track record of working across the aisle to get things done – she passed over 80 bills in just 5 years, more than almost every other legislator. 

She has advocated to fight climate change, protect Minnesota’s lakes and rivers, strengthen the infrastructure in the Third District, provide resources for our veterans, address racial and geographic disparities in maternal health, improve early childhood education, and support our seniors and caregivers. Senator Morrison has received numerous awards for her work, including the Paul Wellstone Advocacy Award from the Minnesota Psychiatric Society, the Children’s Health Hero Award from the Minnesota Children’s Hospital, the Legislator of the Year Award from the Minnesota Psychological Association, and was just named the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)'s Legislator of the Year. 

In Congress, she will continue to protect the state’s lakes, rivers, and wetlands, and believes we need to continue that legacy for generations to come. Senator Morrison has been a leader in the effort to protect Minnesota’s water – she has championed legislation to protect our lakes from invasive species and to protect the Boundary Waters from copper sulfide mining.
