Gov. Tim Walz says the state will continue to assist with public safety in Minneapolis.

Gov. Tim Walz signaled the start of the fall gubernatorial campaign on Thursday with a news conference to highlight his crime-fighting credentials, an issue that his GOP opponent Scott Jensen wants to use to deny the governor a second term.

Standing outside U.S. Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis, Walz was accompanied by a cadre of top state law enforcement leaders as he pledged to continue the "surge" of state aid to Minneapolis to fight gun violence, carjackings and other crimes.

"This unprecedented force will remain," said Walz, flanked by Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington, State Patrol Col. Matt Langer and Metro Transit Patrol Operations Capt. Richard Raymond.
