Congressman Walz has scored another endorsement with Walz worthy of two more years by the editorial board of the Worthington Daily Globe.
Walz had earlier been endorsed by the New Ulm Journal.
The board writes:
Listening to Tim Walz speak, it’s clear he’s passionate about representing his southwest Minnesota constituents.
Walz, a Democrat from Mankato, has been doing this for six years now, and is in the process of seeking his fourth two-term against radical Republican Allen Quist.
While Walz stresses the importance of working to forge bipartisan solutions — by no means an easy thing nowadays — Quist seems disinterested in negotiating with anyone from the left, instead advocating solutions to trimming the deficit (to cite one issue) that veer even further rightward than GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan.
Minnesota’s First Congressional District is by no means liberal, but it isn’t ultra-conservative, either. Walz realizes this, and during a visit earlier this month to the Daily Globe spoke frequently of the need for compromise. . . .
Walz, nevertheless, is enthusiastic about moving forward, with one example being a bipartisan effort to bring forward the American Clean Energy and Independence Act. “President Kennedy said, ‘Let’s get to the moon by the end of the decade.’ I’d say, ‘Let’s get to energy independence by the end of 20 years.’”
We hope Walz will remain in Washington to help lead the way toward that goal, and others.
