ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Gov. Tim Walz plans to visit several American history monuments across Minnesota this week as part of a call for peace and civility following an attack on the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob last week.

Walz’s first stop will be the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul on Tuesday, followed by Wasioja Historic District in southern Minnesota on Wednesday and the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Duluth on Thursday.

The governor revealed on Monday that state troopers entered the living quarters of the residence this weekend to evacuate his 14-year-old son as a pro-Trump crowd gathered outside last week.
