Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) – First District Congressman Tim Walz has picked Minnesota state Representative Peggy Flanagan to be his running mate in his bid for governor next year.

Flanagan represents a Twin Cities district.  

Walz says if elected, Flanagan would be the first person of color to hold a constitutional office in Minnesota and the highest ranking Native American state-level officeholder in U.S. history.

The two Democrats are scheduled to hold a campaign kickoff rally at the American Indian Center in Minneapolis Saturday and then make stops in Rochester, Mankato, Duluth, Hibbing, Bemidji, Moorhead, and St. Cloud.

The Rochester stop is scheduled at the Bleu Duck Kitchen at noon.

Walz and Flanagan first met at Camp Wellstone in 2005, where she taught him how to knock on doors during his first Congressional run. They’ve maintained a friendship ever since.

Flanigan is a partner with The Management Center and trained progressive candidates on how to run for office at Wellstone Action for 10 years.
