Walz's statement on House Speaker John Boehner's resignation
Congressman Tim Walz, a Democrat representing Minnesota's 1st District, released the following statement Friday following House Speaker John Boehner's announcement that he will be resigning from Congress:
“While John and I don’t agree on every issue, we were often able to work together when we did agree. I believe Congress needs more people willing to work across the aisle, not less. At his core, Speaker Boehner believes in the promise of America and has served this institution with dignity for more than two decades. I will always be grateful to him for his help in passing the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention Act and I wish him well as he begins life outside of Congress.”
