MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Gov. Tim Walz says he’s going to deliver on a campaign promise he made to his son.

Walz, a Democrat, promised his son, Gus, that if he won the race for governor he’d get the family a dog.

While he won the race nearly a year ago, he’s now ready to deliver.

On Thursday, the family’s new pet is expected to make its debut at a press conference at the governor’s residence, where the animal will be a “special guest.”

The breed of the dog remains unknown.
