30-year-old Democrat announces candidacy for Ann Wagner’s Congressional seat

Politics

ST. LOUIS – A Democrat from Creve Coeur is vying for GOP US Representative Ann Wagner’s seat.

Ben Samuels, 30, announced his run Thursday. Samuels says he was motivated to run by the January 6 Capitol attack. He most recently worked for Massachusetts Republican Governor Charlie Baker.

Wagner has won re-election five times in the 2nd Congressional District. She has not stated whether she is seeking re-election yet, although she has expressed interest in the US Senate seat that is soon to be vacated by Roy Blunt.
