WINONA, Minn. (KTTC) -- Fewer than 7 months to go until elections and DFL Congressman Tim Walz is pushing for an endorsement as he pursues a 4th term in Congress.
He spoke at a convention in Winona Saturday morning. It's the first meeting of DFL party activists since redistricting. This district now spans the southern part of Minnesota from South Dakota to the Wisconsin border.
Congressman Walz was there to make his case saying lawmakers are good work in Washington.
Activists met to elect party officers and delegates, as well as endorsing candidate Tim Walz into a fourth term in congress.
Walz stressed to attendees that being a leader in politics means that you are not trying to beat another team, but rather move forward. Congressman Walz claims the most important part of moving forward is listening.
He says, "I think they want to see the economy be fair again. I think there's an idea of fairness that transits. It's not this idea that there's equality of outcomes. Nobody thinks that you should be given something for nothing, but I think that everyone should be given the opportunity to get a good education, to be able to go to college without incurring massive amounts of debt and then to be able to work a job that allows you to earn enough wages to live a middle class life. That's all they're asking for and I think that's what I'm hearing time and time again."
Walz is up for re-election in November.
