Being your Congresswoman has never been a job for me, it is a calling. The work I do in Congress is personal. The Second Congressional District - to me and my family - is home.
Born and raised in Missouri, Ann Wagner understands our conservative Christian family values.
Ann learned the value of a hard day’s work at her parents’ small retail carpet store, Carpetime in Manchester. Working alongside her parents, she learned the value of a dollar, a strong work ethic, honesty, integrity and that government ought to get out of the way and off the backs of hard-working Americans, simply trying to make a living.
These values continue to guide her today as she works to cut taxes and eliminate burdensome regulations so local businesses, like her parent's, can grow and create more jobs.
Ann took her experience with the family business to Mizzou and studied Business Administration. After college, Ann went to work in the private sector and held management positions at Hallmark Cards in Kansas City and Ralston-Purina in St. Louis.
But she felt called to serve Missourians and her community, which is why she ran for Congress and won. In Congress, she has been a conservative fighter for our Christian family values. She continues to take on the radical Left and Planned Parenthood’s attack on life by being a strong voice for the voiceless.
Ann has worked to defend the right to life from Nancy Pelosi and the liberal mob’s attacks. She has introduced the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to ensure medical attention is provided to those who survive an abortion. Any baby born - as the result of a botched abortion or not - should have access to medical care. She will always be a fighter for our most vulnerable population.
Ann has also worked to protect our neighborhoods and communities from violent criminals and sex offenders by building the wall at our southern border. As we’ve seen under Joe Biden’s Administration, open border policies have allowed opportunities for sex traffickers and terrorists to enter our country and even neighborhoods. Ann is continuing to work to ensure these violent criminals are held accountable and our border is secured.
Additionally, in Congress, Ann is working to hold the Communist Chinese regime accountable and ensuring they pay for the damage caused by COVID-19, stands with Israel and is fighting to stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. With your support, Ann will continue pushing back against Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and the radical Left’s socialist agenda that includes rejoining the Paris Climate Accords and negotiating a deal with Iran - the leading state sponsor of terrorism. She knows that we must continue to apply pressure to Iran as they seek to harm Americans at home and abroad.
As the daughter of a Korean War veteran and the mother of an Army Ranger, Ann understands the sacrifices our American heroes make to protect our freedoms. That’s why she has worked to reform the Veterans Affairs health care system to ensure our veterans receive the benefits they deserve.
Most importantly, in Congress, Ann is taking Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and the radical Left head on - pushing back against their socialist agenda and cancel culture tactics. The radical Left will stop at nothing to gain more power and grow the size of government - the Green New Deal, socialized medicine and D.C. statehood. And if you disagree with their beliefs, the liberal mob will use their allies in the media and Big Tech to silence your voice. That’s wrong and an attack on our free speech.
In Congress, Ann will continue to support policies that protect our constitutional rights, stand for life, support our American heroes, hold Communist China accountable, build the wall, sanction Iran and defend our freedoms.
She will also use her business experience to get Washington’s spending under control. Right now, Joe Biden’s economy has been a nightmare for middle-class families – higher taxes, inflation and a growing national debt. Missourians balance their checkbooks every year, and so should Washington.
Ann is the conservative fighter with a proven track record of getting things done in Washington. She’ll always fight for our conservative Christian values.
Ann and her husband, Ray, are blessed with three children, two daughters-in-law and two grandchildren.
