    Folks, this is good news. Minnesota's 1st Congressional District (southern Minnesota) should have GOP representation - and Randy Demmer is the right guy for the job! Current Dem Congressman Tim Walz is one of these guys who votes like a Pelosi clone in DC but acts like a moderate Dem when he's back in his district. In short, let's send his ass back home to Mankato where he can resume boring the students at the high school he used to teach at. Do you want to find out more about Randy Demmer? You do? Good.

    Congressman Tim Walz said Monday he has a solid plan for reinvigorating the economy by targeting tax credits to small business, making sure entrepreneurs have access to loans, investing in improved roads and stabilizing the nation’s energy market. Walz, who’s facing an electorate in five weeks that polls show is discouraged by the depressed economy, detailed his jobs plan at a local success story.

But the pro-gun lobby says Walz gets the nod because of a number of his votes in support of gun rights.
