He’s looking to go where he can get more leverage against Trump and his polices …Being in the US House isn’t that place…
U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, has filed papers to run for Minnesota attorney general.
Ellison, also the vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee, filed Tuesday just hours ahead of a deadline. Ellison will likely need to resign his post with the national party.
Ellison is in his sixth term representing a reliably Democratic Minneapolis-area seat. But he was lured into Minnesota’s attorney general race after the incumbent, Lori Swanson, jumped into the governor’s race on Monday….
Now that Ellison is running to be the chief law enforcement official in his state, I hope he will be more careful not to endorse books that advocate political violence.

They most likely still need to get over the election of non-Caucasian Edward Brooke (R) as Attorney-General of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 1962.
