Shelly Christensen is a retired high school English teacher seeking to unseat incumbent Republican Rep. Kathy Lohmer, a former Assistant Majority Leader, in this Minneapolis-area district. Lohmer made headlines earlier in 2018 for unsupported claims of a plot to "mobilize Muslims to infiltrate Republican caucuses."

Christensen received her teaching degree from the University of Wisconsin River Falls before earning an MA in education. A lifelong resident of the St. Croix Valley, Christensen still coaches a cross-country running team in the area.
