Tim and Peggy will Unite Minnesota and Get Things Done for Our State

Tim Walz is a teacher, a veteran, and a football coach who is running to be Minnesota’s next governor. Peggy Flanagan, his running mate, is a Native American woman, a progressive organizer, and proven legislator.
 

Tim and Peggy’s backgrounds make them uniquely positioned to unite Minnesota and get things done for everyday families. They are a ticket that looks like and understands Minnesota.

As a former high school teacher and football coach with kids in public schools today, Tim knows the difference a good education makes in the lives of children. He also knows what it was like to teach when former Governor Pawlenty forced deep cuts in the classroom. That’s why Tim will fight to bring down class sizes, and for universal pre-K, real career and technical education, and affordable college. Tim won’t let Pawlenty take us backward.

Tim and Peggy believes that no matter where we live, no matter our background or the color of our skin–Minnesota is strongest when we stand together. When Republicans try to bully or divide us, Tim will stand up to them–just like he fought for marriage equality before it was politically popular–and just like he has fought against Donald Trump’s divisive immigration policies.
