Republican Allen Quist announced yesterday that he’s challenging DFL Rep. Tim Walz in Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District. We had a few problems with our audio so we didn’t get Quist’s entire stump speech. We did, however, get the q and a. At that point, he bashed the health care overhaul bill being debated in Congress and the proposed cap and trade bill. He said the winners in the health care bill are “big business” and the “government bureaucrats.”

Side note: For those wondering, we’re hoping to put up stump speeches, news conferences and other campaign related events on the blog so people have as much information as possible to make their decisions at caucuses and at the polling place.

UPDATE: Politico is reporting that Republicans in D.C. aren’t too enthused about Quist’s candidacy. Not sure if that helps or hurts Quist in an endorsing convention.
