Early life, education, and career

Runbeck graduated from Bethel University in Arden Hills, earning her B.A. in Sociology and Social Work. Prior to serving in the Minnesota Legislature, she was a member of the Circle Pines City Council. She was president of the Taxpayers League of Minnesota, served on the Northwest YMCA’s Advisory Board, receiving its Distinguished Leader Award in 2007, and was also development director at the Minnesota Free Market Institute. She has also been a frequent guest on Almanac, a weekly public affairs television show in Minnesota.[1][2]

She previously worked as director of advertising for County Seat Stores and vice president for Dahlberg Incorporated, a hearing aid manufacturer. She later owned a Miracle-Ear hearing aid franchise.[3][4] She and her husband Richard own Braham Monument Company in Braham, Minnesota.

Political career

Runbeck was elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives in 2010 and re-elected in 2012.

She previously served in the Minnesota Senate, representing District 53 from 1993 to 2001, leaving to make an unsuccessful run for the U.S. House of Representatives in Minnesota's 4th District in 2000 against DFLer Betty McCollum. She also served in the House previously, representing the old District 52A from 1989 to 1993 after winning a 1989 special election held after Rep. Gordon Voss resigned to accept an appointment by Governor Rudy Perpich as Chief Administrator of the Minnesota Metropolitan Waste Control Commission.[5][6][7]

Political positions

Runbeck is a conservative Republican, receiving a lifetime score of 89% from the American Conservative Union[8]. She supported the 2012 amendments to the Minnesota State Constitution that intended to ban gay marriage [9] and to require a photo ID to vote.[10] Both of these proposals were later rejected by voters.

Runbeck opposes abortion and voted to ban them past 20 weeks.[11] She has voted to reduce funding for public transportation.[12] She supports lifting the moratorium on nuclear power in the state.[13]
