Dem Govs Get It Done: Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz Teams Up with Former Govs For Nonpartisan PSA Calling for Civility Around Election
“The four of us don’t agree on everything. But we do agree on this: The 2020 election is too important to sit out.”
Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz reunited with former Govs. Mark Dayton, Tim Pawlenty, and Jesse Ventura for a nonpartisan PSA encouraging Minnesotans to vote and calling for civility during the upcoming election.
As some Republicans, including the President, seek to create chaos in our election system and decry voter fraud with zero evidence, the governors call for calm next week, telling people they are confident in Minnesota’s secure voting system and explaining why it’s ok if results aren’t final on November 3rd.
Gov. Walz said, “There is so much more that unites us rather than divides us.”

CBS Minnesota: 4 Minnesota Governors Collaborate To Urge Minnesotans To Vote
Two Democratic Minnesota governors, one Republican and one Independent are united on one thing — the importance of voting in Minnesota.
On Wednesday, Gov. Tim Walz released a video featuring himself alongside former governors Mark Dayton, Tim Pawlenty and Jesse Ventura.
“I asked some friends to help me explain why Election Day might be a little different this year,” Walz tweeted. “The four of us don’t agree on everything. But we do agree on this: The 2020 election is too important to sit out.”
In the video, Ventura says that this election is the “most important” in our lifetimes, and Walz touts Minnesota’s reputation for having the highest voting turnouts in the country. Pawlenty points out that Minnesota has one of the safest election systems, and Dayton says voters should feel confident in the accuracy of the results.
One other message the governors espoused was that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the number of votes being received ahead of time, and by mail, Minnesotans should remain patient for the results, which many expect to take longer than usual to tabulate.
