DFL Responds to Doug Wardlow’s Second Run for Attorney General


“Wardlow is a right-wing extremist who will do anything for political power”

Today, Minnesota DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement in response to failed attorney general candidate Doug Wardlow’s second run for the office:

“Doug Wardlow is a right-wing extremist who will do anything for political power. When Minnesotans heard Wardlow’s plan to politicize the office of Attorney General by purging all DFLers from it, and when Minnesotans saw Wardlow take $24,000 from business owners who defrauded their customers, they agreed that Wardlow was unfit to serve as Attorney General.

“Since his defeat, Doug Wardlow has only gotten more extreme and more dangerous. Wardlow currently serves as general counsel to Mike Lindell, where he provides legal advice to a man who wants to use the United States military to stage a coup and forcefully overturn a free and fair election. The last thing Minnesotans want is a far-right extremist who does not believe in democracy like Doug Wardlow to serve as our Attorney General.”
