Minnesota Dem Tim Walz’s Far-Left Running Mate Admits He’s A Flip-Flopper

Flanagan says that Walz has changed his positions and moved left in the run up to the DFL primary.

The RGA writes:

Democrat Congressman and DFL candidate for Minnesota governor Tim Walz picked a far-left activist running mate, Peggy Flanagan, for his campaign. Now, Flanagan is openly admitting that Walz has flip-flopped and moved left on key positions during the primary.

In a profile piece on Flanagan, the Twin Cities Daily Planet details how Flanagan worked to move Tim Walz to the left on refugee immigration, with Walz backtracking on his original position in favor of requiring intensive background checks, and highlights how Walz has changed his position on the Second Amendment.

Flanagan admits that Walz has changed his positions and moved left in the run up to the DFL primary. Walz was also recently caught changing his position on Obamacare. In May he argued the law was failing his constituents. In October, he claimed he was “proud” to have voted for it.

Tim Walz is a flip-flopping politician who changes his mind come election time. Minnesota deserves a governor who holds and defends his convictions.

Flanagan is candid in sharing the points where Walz and her have disagreed. For instance, in 2015 Walz voted to undermine protections and require intensive background checks for Syrian refugees seeking asylum in the U.S.

“He received a phone call from me after that vote,” Flanagan states, “I told him I was concerned.” Flanagan went on to claim that since that vote, Walz has actively traveled across the state to have conversations with people. She believes that he has since recognized the harmful impact his decision had on immigrants and refugees across that state.

Another concern for urban communities has been Walz’s lenient stand on gun control and his continued support of Second Amendment rights. Having represented Minnesota’s first congressional district since 2007, he has supported issues like concealed carry and has also voted against the enforcement of stricter gun control measures passed by Washington, D.C. These decisions, among others, have awarded him a strong backing from the National Rifle Association.

Walz has since appeared to pivot his position on guns as evidenced by his kick off to the campaign at the American Indian Center, where he touted his change in perspective and commitment to addressing gun control to the room….
