“Democrat Governor Tim Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey were clearly out of their depth and frozen in the headlights during the Minneapolis riots. Everybody who watched the press conferences saw that.

“Neither of them had the ability to get the situation under control.

“For Governor Walz to minimize the men and women who step up and leave their families to protect our state and citizens is ridiculous. Minneapolis burned until the ‘19 year old cooks’ showed up and restored order. The people that Governor Walz is denigrating now are the people who did the job he and Mayor Frey couldn’t do.

“The Republican Party of Minnesota is grateful and proud of The National Guard for providing the leadership that the DFL politicians couldn’t.”
