« Winona Daily News: County turning blue | Main | PiPress: Walz meets today with area mayors to strategize for high-speed rail »

This is bad news for First District Republicans and probably good news for Gov. Pawlenty. I think Walz would have been a very formidable candidate for Governor against Pawlenty (should he run for a third term).

That said, Republican hopes for taking back the district have got to be dispirited after this news. Barring an unforeseen political tsunami, Walz should be a shoo in for 2010 - particularly if the GOP runs failed candidate Brian Davis a second time.

As I've noted previously, I'm going to be very curious how the first district gets carved up in the next redistricting - especially in light of the news that we're likely to lose a congressional district.
