Second State Lawmaker Joins Race Against Walz

Posted March 15, 2007 at 9:26am

Republicans keep lining up for the right to challenge freshman Rep. Tim Walz (D).

State Rep. Randy Demmer said he will contest state Sen. Dick Day and Mark Meyer, a local school board member, for the GOP nod in the Rochester-based 1st district.

National Guard veteran Walz, a teacher before coming to Congress, benefited from last year’s Democratic wave, and late money from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, to unseat former Rep. Gil Gutknecht (R) in November.
