Democrat Ben Samuels Responds to Congresswoman Wagner’s Decision to Run for Re-Election

“Missourians need a pragmatic leader who will end Washington dysfunction” 

Creve Coeur, MO – In response to Congresswoman Ann Wagner announcement that she will run for re-election in Missouri’s 2nd Congressional District, Democratic candidate Ben Samuels issued the following statement: 

“By refusing to support an investigation into the violent attack on our capital and petitioning the Supreme Court to overturn our presidential election, Congresswoman Wagner sided with extremists over our law enforcement community and broke her oath of office. 

I’m running because in these hyper-partisan times, Missourians need a pragmatic leader who will end Washington dysfunction and work with both parties to support small businesses and get people back to work.” 


Ben Samuels is a businessperson, an economic policy expert, and a bipartisan problem-solver running for Congress in Missouri’s 2nd Congressional District. Samuels is a sixth generation Missourian and comes from a long line of St. Louis entrepreneurs and civic leaders, including
