“So I’d ask you all, join us.”

…Governor Tim Walz addressing supporters at a virtual campaign rally last night (Tues), as Republican rivals blast his record on crime.  Senator Michelle Benson:

“We saw him sit on his hands while Minneapolis and Saint Paul burned.   The radical left keeps talking about defunding the police.”

Walz has said he does not support defunding the police, but reiterated last night he’ll continue pushing for police reform:

“You can hold two thoughts at the same time:  We can ask for police reform while also tackling gun violence and crime.  That’s what our communities are asking for.”
