Attorney General Keith Ellison

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison last Monday announced he is seeking a second term in 2022. He said he wants to keep working to create a fair economy.

“This is a campaign to increase participation of all people who believe in the simple idea of liberty and justice for all,” Ellison said.

A North Minneapolis resident, Ellison served 12 years in the Minnesota House of Representatives, before being elected to the US House of Representatives replacing Martin Sabo, who held the seat almost 30 years.

Ellison shifted his focus to what he called “front-line” work  in seeking to become Minnesota’s Attorney General, defeating Republican candidate Doug Wardlow, who has announced he will challenge Ellison in the upcoming election.

Ellison gained national and world-wide recognition when his office successfully prosecuted for policeman Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd

In seeking reelection, Ellison said he will continue working to increase voter participation. “This is a campaign to increase participation of all people who believe in the simple idea of liberty and justice for all,” Ellison said.

Among several political leaders endorsing Ellison’s reelection bid, Senator Amy Klobuchar, said, “If we want to make real, lasting progress for working families, for the people of Minnesota, we need partners like Keith fighting for us.”
