Here is my letter supporting Tim Walz for Governor that was published in the Star Tribune on March 1.
Walz is the most electable DFL governor candidate statewide. Regarding the Minnesota House, the Republicans control it now because they have successfully capitalized on the myth (that they promote) that there is a great divide between the metro area and greater Minnesota. Guns is one of the issues they use to promote this myth. Walz is the GOP’s greatest fear. He will successfully campaign for House DFL candidates statewide by discussing progressive values including gun control. With Walz and Peggy Flanagan as governor and lieutenant governor and Melissa Hortman as speaker of the House, Minnesota will pass effective and reasonable gun-control legislation.
