PLYMOUTH, Minn. – September 19, 2022 – Today, the Jim Schultz for Minnesota Attorney General campaign released the following statement after a new Star Tribune/MPR News/Kare 11 poll shows the race between Schultz and Democrat Keith Ellison to be a dead heat, with Ellison at 46% and Schultz at 45%. The poll also shows Schultz beating Ellison in the metro suburbs, Northern Minnesota, and Southern Minnesota.
“This latest poll is further proof that Minnesotans have had enough of Keith Ellison and his dangerous policies,” said campaign manager Christine Snell. “Keith Ellison is going to lose in November. Just as Minneapolis voters rejected Ellison’s efforts to defund the police, Minnesota voters will reject Ellison’s second term as they continue to learn about his extreme far-left record as Attorney General. Unlike defund-the-police Democrat Keith Ellison, Jim Schultz will partner with police to crack down on violent crime and restore safety to our communities.”
