The head of the National Republican Congressional Committee used Saturday’s GOP weekly address to tout four congressional candidates, including Minnesota state Sen. Torrey Westrom.

Rep. Greg Walden urged voters to support Westrom and the other Republican candidates to bring accountability to Washington, D.C., and send a message to President Obama and congressional Democrats.

“As our campaign chairman, I can tell you our candidates for the House are people just as frustrated as you are; they are leaders who are ready to serve,” Walden said.

"Up in Minnesota, Torrey Westrom is talking to Minnesota families and farmers about the anti-energy policies and taxes that are making it harder for them to get by.”

Westrom is challenging 12-term Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson in the Seventh Congressional District.

"This November, Americans can reject the complacency and incompetence and begin to restore a government that works for us and not against us," Walden said.
