On Saturday, Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz said he “heard” that 80 percent of rioters were from out-of-state.

“I think our best estimate right now that I heard is about 20% is what we think are Minnesotans and about 80% are outside,” he said.

“So, I’m not trying to deflect in any way. I’m not trying to say there aren’t Minnesotans amongst this group.”
