Walz on redistricting plan: “Whatever comes, comes”

As the Minnesota House considers the congressional redistricting bill put forward by Republicans, one of the plan’s targets expressed ease with the redistricting process.

“Whatever comes, comes,” said DFL Rep. Tim Walz, whose southern Minnesota district could see an influx of thousands of Republican-leaning voters under the House plan.

“I just trust the integrity of the system,” Walz said. “I don’t put a lot of stock [in the GOP plan] because it won’t be the end result.”

Gov. Mark Dayton has said he will veto any redistricting bill that lacks bipartisan support and many observers expect courts to ultimately draw the district boundaries.
