Minnesota doctor PAC supports the governor. Walz for re-election in an unconventional move

The Minnesota Medical Association’s PAC endorsed the governor. Tim Walz (D) in his campaign for re-election, in an unconventional move for the organization.

“During his four years at the helm of Minnesota, Gov. Walz has demonstrated his alignment with our core values ​​of respect, honesty, and support for science and public health,” the chairman of the board said Tuesday. MEDPAC, Will Nicholson, in a press release.

The endorsement represents a one-time decision for the PAC, which does not typically endorse applicants for state runs, according to the Minnesota Medical Association.

“The ongoing global pandemic and other critical health issues are at stake this year and that compelled the organization to support a candidate who would best advocate for the health of Minnesotans,” Nicholson added.

Nicholson cited Walz’s policies on COVID-19, reproductive health care and gun control in the governor’s PAC endorsement.

The PAC endorsed Walz over Republican nominee and fellow physician Scott Jensen.

Jensen said he was not vaccinated against COVID-19 and had previously compared COVID-19 restrictions to those instituted during the rise of the Nazis in Germany, according to MPR News.

He has also previously claimed that he supports an abortion ban in Minnesota with no exceptions for rape and incest unless the mother’s life is in danger. However, he has since backtracked on that stance, saying he also supports exceptions for victims of rape and incest, according to CNN.
