Parry and Quist to court local Tea Party voters
1st District Republican candidates Mike Parry and Allen Quist are both expected to attend a candidate's forum on Thursday night sponsored by the Rochester Area Tea Party Patriots.
Also scheduled to attend are two GOP candidates vying for the chance to run against DFL Sen. Amy Klobuchar — Joe Arwood and Anthony Hernandez. A third candidate, Dan Severson, is unable to attend.
The "Meet the Candidates" event will be at 7 p.m. in the meeting room at Godfathers Pizza, 1611 16th Street N.W. in Rochester. Each candidate will be given a few minutes to introduce themselves, discuss their qualifications for office and outline their top political priorities.
