Democratic Rep. Tim Walz officially has a Republican opponent in Minnesotaâ€™s 1st District.
Republican state Rep. Mike Benson announced on Monday that he will run against Walz in 2014, according to a local report.
Bensonâ€™s declaration comes on the heels of Republican state Sen. Jeremy Millerâ€™s announcement that he will not challenge Walz for the seat. Miller said he was approached to run but decided against a bid after consulting his family, according to local reports.
Other Republicans have said they may choose to run as well, including state Sens. Al DeKruif and Mike Parry. Parry lost a Republican primary last cycle to former state Rep. Allen Quist.
