Walz calls for a 'united' state of the state amid COVID-19
April 6, 2020
Gov. Tim Walz, speaking Sunday into a camera from his official residence in St. Paul, turned his second State of the State address into an impassioned call to arms to fight the spread of the novel coronavirus that has upturned Minnesotans' lives and staggered the state's economy.
Putting aside the normal policy agendas that have been consumed by the COVID-19 crisis, the governor exalted Minnesotans' grit and generosity in the face of the threat, which has seen rising death tolls in the state and across the nation in recent weeks.
