The Candidate: Angela Anne Michael
The Race: Democratic Party Candidate for the 15th Congressional District.
The Competition: John M. Shimkus
The Buzz: Michael is a retired obstetrics nurse who is strongly against abortion. She is a host on a Christian radio station in St. Louis and runs Small Victories Ministries, a group that frequently protests outside abortion clinics.
Michael openly admits she is running a race she knows she will not win. Instead, she said she is using the campaign to spread her message of anti-abortion. She aired graphic anti-abortion campaign commercials in St. Louis during the Super Bowl.
Although listed as a Democrat, Michael has loyally voted Republican for years. Her campaign does not address any issues aside from being against abortion.
She and her husband have 13 children.
