January 14, 2019

Gov. Tim Walz spoke with Tony Sanneh of the Sanneh Foundation during the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce's annual policy kickoff event Wednesday.

Gov. Tim Walz celebrated his first week in office with a boisterous inaugural party in Minneapolis on Saturday, treating thousands of Minnesotans to a night of food and performances meant to highlight the state's diversity and strengths.

Roughly 3,000 supporters, along with a handful of protesters, packed into a ballroom at the Minneapolis Convention Center for the One Minnesota Inaugural Celebration. Attendees decked out in evening gowns and blue "Educators for Walz" T-shirts milled around the red-lit room, snacking on Swedish meatballs and walleye cakes as they sipped drinks from one of several cash bars. Many, including Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan, sported the campaign's signature buffalo plaid. A diverse lineup of Minnesota artists - a break-dancing troupe, young hip-hop artists from a YMCA after-school program and alt-country singer Martin Zellar - entertained the crowd.
