Walz Draws a Crowd for Minn. House Seat

Rep. Tim Walz (D) won his 2008 re-election campaign with a nearly 30 percent cushion, but that hasn’t stopped a crowd of Republicans from jumping in the race to knock him off in 2010.

Randy Demmer (R), assistant minority leader in the Minnesota House, launched his campaign Tuesday morning, his second run for Congress, after losing in the 1st district GOP primary in 2008.

And the rumor swirling around the Minnesota press and political circles is that Jim Hagedorn, son of former Rep. Tom Hagedorn (R), will launch his bid Wednesday. Hagedorn was a longtime congressional and executive branch staffer and until recently a blogger by the name of “Mr. Conservative.”
