Democratic Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison announced today he is running for a second term. Ellison says he’ll continue in a second term to fight for fair wages for Minnesota workers “and fair prices in consumer areas and we’re going to make sure that people have a place to live that’s fair and decent for them to live in and that there’s nobody who is left out of this society or this economy simply because of who they are.” Ellison says if re-elected he will continue to “stand up for people in rural communities, suburban communities, urban communities, that’s what we’re going to be doing in the MN Attorney General’s office. We have a fight and we are in to make sure that everyone can afford their lives and live with dignity, safety and respect.” Ellison led the prosecution team that won the conviction of ex-officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd. Ellison is Minnesota’s first Black attorney general. He was also the first Muslim elected to Congress, a job he left in 2018 to run for attorney general.
