DFL Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan and Republican challenger Matt Birk are using their differences to appeal to voters. Birk is a Harvard graduate and two-time All-Pro center for the Minnesota Vikings. He says he decided to sign on to Scott Jensen’s ticket because of disappointment in the way Governor Tim Walz handled the COVID-19 pandemic. Flanagan is the nation’s highest ranking Native American woman elected to executive office and says she approaches the job as a partnership with Governor Walz.
