A group of House Republicans has refused to renew the support of Rep. Linda Hall, a Republican from Minnesota, as she works on her second bid for a second term.
The Minnesota lawmaker announced her bid on Twitter Friday.
Hall, who served as a Republican governor from 1999 to 2011, said she is focused on the issues of the day, such as a bill that would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
Hall is also a key ally of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat.
She was an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement.
Hall’s bid to represent the 6th Congressional District, which includes Minneapolis, drew praise from Democratic lawmakers who have been trying to block Trump’s signature legislative accomplishment.
It has not been without its critics, however, with Democrats saying she has been too quick to call out Trump and has shown little understanding of the issue of gun violence.
Hall has made headlines for her controversial comments.
She is an outspoken opponent of gun control, including her recent calls to abolish the Violence Against Women Act, which requires the FBI to report domestic violence incidents involving victims of domestic violence.
She also has been criticized for supporting gun control measures in the aftermath of a mass shooting at a community college in Oregon.
