Rep. Tim Walz (D-01) said Monday “after months of con­sid­er­ing a pos­sible bid, he has de­cided to run in 2018. [He] said he be­lieves he has shown dur­ing his years in Con­gress he is will­ing to work across the aisle to get things done.” Walz and “his fam­ily are headed up to St. Paul this morn­ing to of­fi­cially file the pa­per­work to run for gov­ernor.”

Walz: “I think now more than ever people are just want­ing (gov­ern­ment) to work. They are not look­ing for the par­tis­an­ship. They are not look­ing for me to have all the an­swers, but they are cer­tainly look­ing for me to bring people to­geth­er to find those solu­tions that we all know are there.” (Rochester Post Bul­let­in)

State Rep. Tina Liebling (D) “is slated to make an an­nounce­ment about her polit­ic­al fu­ture at 1 p.m. on Sunday at the Peace Plaza in down­town Rochester. Liebling has pre­vi­ously said she is ser­i­ously con­sid­er­ing a run for gov­ernor. A Face­book event list­ing calls Sunday’s event the ‘Be­lieve in Min­nesota Rally.’ It says Liebling will dis­cuss eco­nom­ic op­por­tun­ity, health care and edu­ca­tion.” (Rochester Post-Bul­let­in)
