Law Enforcement Leaders Choose Sides In Minnesota Attorney General’s Race
(St. Paul, MN) — Law enforcement leaders are choosing sides in the Minnesota attorney general’s race. Nine Minnesota county attorneys endorsed Democratic incumbent Keith Ellison’s re-election campaign yesterday. The move comes after nearly two dozen county sheriffs endorsed his Republican opponent Jim Schultz. Former Minnesota Attorney General Skip Humphrey, Senator Amy Klobuchar, and two former county attorneys have also endorsed Ellison. Klobuchar is a former Hennepin County attorney.
