Second State Lawmaker Joins Race Against Walz
Republicans keep lining up for the right to challenge freshman Rep. Tim Walz (D).
State Rep. Randy Demmer said he will contest state Sen. Dick Day and Mark Meyer, a local school board member, for the GOP nod in the Rochester-based 1st district.
National Guard veteran Walz, a teacher before coming to Congress, benefited from last year’s Democratic wave, and late money from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, to unseat former Rep. Gil Gutknecht (R) in November.
