Editorial Recap: When You Vote for Governor, Remember to Remember
Posted at 8:50 p.m. on Tuesday, September 27, 2022
When you vote for governor in this year’s general election — whether it’s in advance by absentee or mail-in ballot, or in person on Election Day in November — be sure to remember this.
Remember what our current governor did at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He closed our schools, setting our children back academically and socially to a degree that is only now becoming painfully evident. He shut down our businesses, leaving many locals to sit in dark downtown storefronts watching a steady stream of cars driving 20 minutes south to spend money out of state. And he stole our personal freedoms, forbidding us to go to church; forbidding us to celebrate weddings, funerals and parties; and even dictate what we wear in public.
Remember what our governor did when Minneapolis was overrun with rioters following the death of George Floyd. Not much, in the end, essentially allowing the state’s largest city to be ravaged by looters and vandals who set part of it on fire – a response that even the governor himself called a “dismal failure”.
And remember what our governor did in the days after the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. He started advertising our great state as a “destination” for women from other states to come and have their children killed.
It is obvious that Tim Walz has failed and continues to fail as governor. He does not deserve four more years in power.
When you vote this fall, be sure to remember that.
