DGA Chair Walz Talks Power to Appoint on Morning Joe: “Build up the firewalls in states, build up the ability to push back”

This morning, DGA Chair and Minnesota Governor Tim Walz joined Morning Joe, where he discussed the DGA’s new Power To Appoint Fund, stressing the importance of electing Democratic governors who have the power to appoint judges in light of the Alabama Supreme Court’s decision jeopardizing IVF therapy.

Gov. Walz stated: “This stems from the responsibility of Governors to be able to appoint judges, not Democratic judges, but judges who follow the rule of law. If you had a Democratic governor in Alabama, we wouldn’t be having this decision.”

Gov. Walz also highlighted the role of Democratic governors as a firewall protecting basic freedoms, saying, “This is going to be one of the major issues as it should be. This is the most basic freedom issue to make your own bodily autonomy choices and Democratic governors are there to defend it.”
