Republican Hopes to Have His Day vs. Walz

State Sen. Dick Day (R) filed candidacy papers to challenge freshman Rep. Tim Walz (D) next year, he told Minnesota Public Radio.

Day became the second Republican to publicly discuss taking on Walz in the Rochester-based 1st district.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee wasted no time skewering Day, who told the radio station that he was running for Congress because he does not “have a lot of hobbies.”

The DCCC issued a press release Monday chastising Day for not joining the debate over serious issues, such as the Iraq War.
