School Board Chairman Wants to Challenge Walz

Freshman Rep. Tim Walz (D) has drawn his first Republican opponent.

Mark Meyer (R), a local school board chairman from Lake Crystal, told the New Ulm Journal last week that he had formed an exploratory committee.

Walz beat then-Rep. Gil Gutknecht (R) to win the Rochester-based 1st district seat last year. He is expected to be a top GOP target in 2008.
