State Sen. Mike Parry to challenge Walz in 1st District

State Sen. Mike Parry, a Republican from Waseca, has announced he’ll seek his party’s endorsement to run against Democratic Congressman Tim Walz in the 1st District.

On his Parry for Congress website, he says: “It is time to send a leader to Congress who consistently represents our values both in Minnesota and in Washington.”

Parry is a former broadcaster and manager in the radio industry and currently co-owner of a Waseca pizza restaurant, says the Mankato Free Press. He was first elected to the state Senate in a 2010 special election and then was re-elected to a full term later that year.

Walz is in his third term in the House.

    Tim Walz is an extremely honorable man and he represents my values and the values of all the poeple who elected him for three terms. What values is Parry talking about???
