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

Health care

Obamacare has failed hardworking Minnesotans. A government takeover of health care has driven up costs, hurt small businesses, and reduced the quality of care. I believe in a patient-centered, market-driven health care system that provides individuals and families with affordable, accessible coverage and care.


America was founded by immigrants and immigrants continue to enrich our nation. But in order to continue this legacy, we must modernize and fix our broken immigration system.

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.

If it’s one thing I’ve learned on the campaign trail, it’s that Minnesotans are really, really good people — and I’ll never forget it. From the Iron Range to the prairies and everywhere in between, the spirit of Minnesotans is strong.
