Walz rallies with veterans

Rochester (KTTC-DT) -- Congressman, Tim Walz was back in Rochester again Wednesday afternoon, this time enjoying the support of veterans. Walz was at the VFW talking about veterans issues.

It wasn't a large crowd at the VFW, but still an excited one.

Tim Walz has made stops in Rochester almost every day since Sunday.

Walz has had the backing of many veterans during his time in Congress.

He sits on the House Veterans Committee and has pushed for many veterans issues.

He promised to continue his fight if he is elected.

"This is the issue all of you know, transcends politics. This does not know political ideology, democrat, republican, independent or whatever. It's either do it or shut up about it," says Walz.

After the small rally, Walz took his campaign to the VFW in Winona.

Walz's competitor, Randy Demmer, will kick off his "Heartland Values" tour Thursday evening in Kasson.

He plans to make stops in each of the 22 counties in the first district during the last 5 days leading to election day.
