September 19, 2020 0 By HearthstoneYarns

Vowing to take on corporate monopolies, fight for the rights of workers, and hold the powerful to account just as he did for over a decade in Congress, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) announced on Tuesday that he is running for attorney general of Minnesota.

“From immigration reform to protecting our air and water, it has never been more important to have a leader as attorney general who can stand up against threats to our neighbors’ health or freedoms.”
—Rep. Keith Ellison

“Too often, Minnesota’s working families and the most vulnerable amoung us are taken advantage of or are targets of discrimination. I am running to be the People’s Lawyer to hold those in power accountable and to protect and defend all Minnesotans,” Ellison said in a statement after officially filing the paperwork for his candidacy. “When Minnesotans are ripped off, they need a fighter on their side.”

“No one—not even a president—is above the law,” Ellison added. “From immigration reform to protecting our air and water, it has never been more important to have a leader as attorney general who can stand up against threats to our neighbors’ health or freedoms.”
