MN GOP CONVENTION: Delegates forced to choose between dangerous extremists in Attorney General endorsement


This weekend, Republican convention delegates have the unenviable task of trying to decide which right-wing extremist to endorse for the office of Attorney General.

Background on the field:

DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement on the field of Republican candidates: 

“The question Republicans are faced with is not whether to endorse a dangerous extremist for Attorney General, but which dangerous extremist to endorse. It should disturb every voter that the Republican candidates for Attorney General would rather use the office to attack their fellow Minnesotans and undermine democracy than uphold the rule of law. 

“Fortunately, the Republican race for attorney general is already bound for a primary. While their extremist field lurches further to the right and spends precious resources to win their primary, the DFL Party will be talking to general election voters across Minnesota about our values of fairness, safety, and justice for all.”
