ROCHESTER, Minn.- We are now less than a week out from midterm elections, candidates continue to make their rounds.
Today, gubernatorial candidate Tim Walz joined other democrats to energize people to get out the vote.

Walz spoke about how Minnesotans across the state can come together no matter their ethnicity.
A lot of the people in the crowd at today's event agreed, adding there is too much division in politics. He is campaigning to change that.
“Thinking about the privilege living in this state where we stand on the shoulders of giants that carved out a different way of doing things. Minnesota looks different because we believe in community,” said Walz.
We reached out to Walz's opponent republican candidate Jeff Johnson who tells KIMT he feels a lot of energy and support behind his campaign.

“I feel a strong energy and desire for change this midterm election. Our message is simple: We’re going to let people keep more of what they earn; hold state government accountable to taxpayers again; and change the culture and attitude of state agencies from controlling us to serving the people of Minnesota.”
