State Rep. Steve Drazkowski, R-Mazzeppa, made his future political intentions clearer today by endorsing state Sen. Mike Parry, R-Waseca, for Congress in Minnesota’s First District.
Drazkowski had reportedly been considering his own bid to try to unseat incumbent Democratic Congressman Tim Walz. Parry announced his candidacy earlier this month. In a news release from the Parry campaign, Drazkowski said he was proud to make the endorsement.
“After five years in Washington, Congressman Tim Walz has represented the values of Washington liberals like Nancy Pelosi and not the values of Southern Minnesota,” Drazkowski said. “I’m convinced that Mike will build the grassroots campaign to defeat Congressman Walz. As a small business owner, he is best equipped to go to Washington and rein in wasteful government spending and jump start our economy.”
