I am calling on Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz to appoint Erin Murphy to fill Amy Klobuchar’s U.S. Senate seat if Klobuchar is pulled into the administration of President-elect Joe Biden. The politics of joy must be championed.

Murphy is a former five-term state representative, state House majority leader, DFL-endorsed gubernatorial candidate, and state senator-elect. She has the grassroots energy needed to energize a victory in 2022 to secure the U.S. Senate seat for the following six years.

Murphy also has solid name recognition in Minnesota, is genuine, and she embodies everything our politics should be about: improving people’s lives.

I am asking for everyone to encourage Walz to fill the potential vacant Senate seat with Erin Murphy.
