A new voice for Minnesota

I'm running for U.S. Senate because I believe in our future. I believe in a thriving economy, healthy families, and a government accountable to you. With my experience as a state senator, businesswoman, and mom, I will be a new voice for Minnesota.

Meet Karin

The daughter of two public school teachers, Karin was born and raised in South St. Paul. She married her high school sweetheart, Phil Housley, in 1985. For 20 years, Phil's NHL Hall of Fame hockey career took the Housleys all over the United States and Canada – but Minnesota always remained their "forever home". In 2012, Karin was elected to serve the St. Croix River Valley in the Minnesota Senate. Karin and Phil make their home along the St. Croix River in St. Marys Point. They are the parents of four grown children and grandparents of two adorable grandsons. LEARN MORE.

On The Issues


Mining is one of Minnesota’s most important industries. When it comes to copper-nickel mining, I believe we can both protect our environment and mine responsibly, maintaining our clean water while opening the door to a major economic boost.

Elder care

As chair of the first-ever Minnesota Senate Aging & Long-Term Care Committee, I’m proud of the work I’ve done to protect our seniors. These are our moms and our dads, our brothers and our sisters, our neighbors and our friends — and they deserve to be protected.


I believe in free and fair trade, unhindered by practices that unfairly disadvantage one side of a trade relationship. In a global economy, American workers are positioned to succeed as long as we are playing by the same set of rules. To grow our economy, we should encourage free trade – but not at the expense of our national security or shipping jobs overseas.
