Republican MNCD1 candidate Allen Quist is still malingering in Tampa, hoping to make contacts among the power brokers at the Republican National Convention.
Meanwhile, Tim Walz, representatives from the Minnesota Farm Bureau and Farmers Union, the president of the Albert Lea chamber of commerce and local business people turned to demand that the House come together, compromise and get a bill passed.
Update: Sarah Stultz at Albert Lea Tribune reports in Walz calls for vote on farm bill:
Chamber Director Randy Kehr spoke of the role agriculture plays in the economy of Freeborn County.
Mac Ehrhardt, co-owner of Albert Lea Seed House agreed. He said the main role of his business is to sell seed to farmers, who ultimately plant it.
“It’s difficult for them to plan for the future,” Ehrhardt said.
Kevin Paap, president of the Minnesota Farm Bureau, said there needs to be some certainty for farmers.
