Miller won't challenge Walz for 1st District congressional seat

WINONA, Minnesota (WXOW) -- A state senator says he isn't going to run for higher office.

Republican State Senator Jeremy Miller from Winona says he has decided not to run against incumbent DFL-er Tim Walz for Minnesota's First District seat in Congress.

Miller says he was approached to challenge Walz, but after considering the idea, he and his wife Janel have decided the timing isn't right to make the run.

Miller says with one young son and twin boys due to be born in August, he's going to focus on family, and the family recycling business, as well as his duties as a State Senator.

Walz, from Mankato, is serving in his fourth term in Congress.
