Schultz Announces Endorsement from Former U.S. Attorney Thomas B. Heffelfinger

PLYMOUTH, Minn. – October 26, 2022 – Jim Schultz, Republican nominee for Minnesota Attorney General, today announced the endorsement of former U.S. Attorney Thomas B. Heffelfinger. An extraordinarily well-respected attorney, Mr. Heffelfinger served as the U.S. Attorney for Minnesota from 1991 – 1993 and from 2001 – 2006. He also served as assistant U.S. Attorney from 1982 – 1988 and as assistant Hennepin County Attorney from 1976 – 1982.

During his time as U.S. Attorney and throughout his career, Tom has exemplified fair and impartial justice and extraordinary professionalism,” Schultz said. “He devoted significant time working on matters related to underprivileged communities and worked hard to ensure that all Minnesotans receive justice. I am honored to receive the endorsement of such a well-respected figure in the law enforcement community. It adds to the 37 county sheriffs and countless other men and women in law enforcement who have supported our campaign.”

“Jim Schultz understands that, just as the Attorney General of the United States is the nation’s chief legal officer, the Attorney General of Minnesota is the state’s chief legal officer,” Heffelfinger said. “At this current moment in Minnesota’s history, we need to ensure that we have a Minnesota Attorney General that will lead an office focused on working with county and local officials to prosecute the extraordinary violent crime in our state and restoring public safety to our communities. Jim has the background and vision to do that. He has my full endorsement and confidence, and I am proud to stand alongside him in this election.”

Heffelfinger joins 37 county sheriffs and other law enforcement groups in their endorsement of Schultz, including the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association, the National Troopers Coalition, and the Ramsey County Deputies’ Federation.
