“As a former member of Congress representing Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District, I know exactly how difficult this job can be,” said Walz. “In addition to the incredible leadership that each of these members has displayed on the national stage during their time in Congress, they have done an equally impressive job staying grounded in their home districts.”
