DULUTH – With Lake Superior roiling behind him, Gov. Tim Walz returned to his role as a history teacher Thursday in an appeal for civility and peace in the aftermath of the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
"It's been difficult, but once again the choice is for us to make the choices that previous generations made, to figure out a way to get together and solve the problem and move forward," Walz said. "This is the hardest thing to do."
Walz's visit to Duluth concluded a multicity tour of some of the state's historic monuments this week in response to the violence at the Capitol, underscoring the fragile state of the country's institutions and politics.
