WALZ RELEASE: Walz receives Netroots Endorsement


(Mankato, Minn.) – Tim Walz received an endorsement today from the Netroots online community. The Walz Netroots endorsement is the result of continuous attention in the blogosphere. Ultimately, decisions about which candidates receive endorsement are made by the authors of three major blogs: MyDD, Swing State Project, and DailyKos.

As a Netroots endorsed candidate Tim Walz will be a part of the Netroots Act Blue fundraising push, which is currently raising money for 18 candidates across the country. Netroots has raised thousands of dollars for other progressive candidates such as John Tester and Eric Massa.

“I’m thrilled to be the recipient of an endorsement from the Netroots community,” said Walz. “Netroots is a community of online activists who are eager to see change in their country and I am honored to have their support.

"I would like to thank all the grassroots activists here in the 1st Congressional District and throughout the country who helped me earn this endorsement. The support of the Netroots community, coupled with the support I'm receiving from the citizens of southern Minnesota will make the difference in this race."

National Journal currently ranks the Walz race among the top 40 congressional races in the country.

A number of Minnesota blogs contributed to the grassroots buzz that ultimately earned Walz the endorsement. Those blogs include Bluestem Prairie, MN Publius, Minvolved and Minnesota Campaign Report.

Prepared and paid for by Tim Walz for U.S. Congress.
