Our next candidate profile is a familiar face to Southern Minnesota.

Tim Walz is looking to trade his seat in Congress for a place in the Governor's Mansion.

KEYC News 12's Ashley Hanley tells us why Walz thinks he's the best for St. Paul.

After 12 years in Congress, Tim Walz decided it was time to try to lead the state of Minnesota as Governor.

He shared with me why he would bring the needs of the southern part of the state to St. Paul.

Walz is up against Erin Murphy and Lori Swanson for the DFL nomination.
