Winona Daily News: Our view: Walz deserves to be re-elected

We admire courage – which is a key reason we endorse Tim Walz to continue serving Minnesota’s 1st District as our congressman.

It took courage to propose a bill to prohibit members of Congress from using information they receive in their elected roles to profit personally.

The Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act passed 96-3 in the Senate and 417-2 in the House and earned this from Republican Eric Cantor, the House Majority Leader: “I particularly want to recognize his willingness to reach across the aisle and keep the lines of communication open as we work to make clear that elected officials abide by the same rules as the American people.”
