About

Tina Smith serves as United States Senator for Minnesota. She’s a fierce advocate for Minnesotans and is focused on continuing the progressive legacy of the seat she holds. She was born on March 4, 1958, and grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In 1980, she graduated from Stanford University and earned an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. Tina moved to Minnesota in 1984 to work at General Mills and raise a family with her husband, Archie. They've been married for more than 30 years and have two sons, Sam and Mason.

 

Tina left General Mills to start her own small business. Since then, she has dedicated her career to working on behalf of Minnesotans to improve lives and ensure that the state government works better for the people it serves. She's served as Chief of Staff to both Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and Governor Mark Dayton. In 2014, Tina was elected to serve as Minnesota’s 48th Lieutenant Governor. As Lieutenant Governor, she's traveled to every corner of the state to talk with, learn from, and work on behalf of Minnesotans.

 

Tina Smith is proud to have worked on issues like tax fairness. In Minnesota, she helped push to make sure the wealthiest two percent to pay their fair share which resulted in lower income taxes for everyone else in the state—and all while balancing the state’s budget.
