Tina Smith

MN (D)
Current office holder: Tina Smith (D)
Senator Tina Smith is a working mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, and a friend, from a long line of strong women. She has been a small-business owner, a non-profit executive, a community activist, and a public servant. While she never anticipated or planned to be a Senator, she has never been one to shrink from a challenge or opportunity to live what she's learned from her parents, her family, and the people of Minnesota: work hard, be humble, treat people with respect, and do what you can to improve people's lives. Those are the values that have guided her in her life and now guide her work as a Senator.
How does Tina align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Tina believes in economic opportunity and a diverse economy, so businesses can grow and workers can get better pay and better jobs. She believes this can be achieved by investing in manufacturing and technology, helping small businesses grow, and expanding our agriculture economy. She believes education is the engine of opportunity and needs to be available to all of us, not just some. She believes higher education should be affordable and accessible to everyone and that we need to open up opportunities for career and technical training.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: Tina believes our immigration system is broken and in need of reform. She supports immigration policies that make sense for our economy, secure our border, and provide a tough but fair path to citizenship. She believes every American deserves to be treated with dignity and respect and that we need to defend the progress that has been made for LGBTQ equality and fight the injustices that still exist for far too many Americans.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Tina supports and believes single-payer health care is the most direct way to ensure universal coverage, so nobody has to choose between paying for health care and putting food on the table. She believes we need to address climate change, protect our country's national treasures, and fight back against efforts by this Administration to roll back responsible environmental policy. She supports passing common-sense laws that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous individuals.
