ROCHESTER, Minn. – Jim Schultz, a political outsider and attorney from the Twin Cities, today released the following statement upon being endorsed for Attorney General by the Republican Party of Minnesota:
“Since launching my campaign for Minnesota Attorney General six months ago, I have been humbled by the outpouring of support we have received from folks across the state. Thank you to the delegates and supporters for entrusting me to take on far-left Attorney General Keith Ellison this November. I won’t let you down. Most of all, thank you to Molly and my family for their love and support.
“It was great campaigning with Lynne, Tad, and Doug. They are conservative leaders and I look forward to working with them to defeat Keith Ellison. The fight for the general election starts now. From his radical efforts to defund the police to his extraordinary politicization of the office, Keith Ellison has been a disaster for our state and Minnesotans will hold him accountable in November.”
