Gov. Walz talks with WTIP about mask mandate, GOP event on Devil Track Lake

This week at a GOP-sponsored event on the shores of Devil Track Lake, Jennifer Carnahan, the chair of the Minnesota Republican Party, said Gov. Tim Walz is abusing his power and showing Minnesotans what communism looks like in 2020.

Also this week, the governor signed an executive order instituting a statewide mask mandate for all indoor public places and other settings where social distancing is difficult to do. Minnesota’s statewide mask mandate takes effect Saturday, July 25.

Walz spoke with WTIP’s Joe Friedrichs about these topics and more in this exclusive interview.
