Asked by CNN’s Chris Cuomo if he thinks President Trump has a shot of winning Minnesota, MN AG Keith Ellison replied “Honestly, yeah, I do.”
He continued “I will tell you, I believe in our campaign workers and organizers. They’re working extremely hard. I can tell you that Minnesotans know what a problem Trump is.”
“They know he doesn’t care about their health care. They know all the bad things about him.”
“But there are some folks who still are supporting him. And so what I tell people is, one, he does have a shot, don’t play it cheap, work hard for every single vote. And don’t stop until 8:00 on November 3,” he added.
Friday, President Donald Trump blasted Minnesota AG Keith Ellison, arguing that he didn’t apply rally restrictions he applied to the Trump campaign to protesters after George Floyd’s death.
Trump said “Your far-left Democrat Attorney General Keith Ellison and your Democrat Governor tried to shut down our rally, silence the people of Minnesota, and take away your freedom and your rights.”
The Presidentalso argued “When rioters and vandals sacked the city of Minneapolis earlier this year, Keith Ellison did not ask them to submit a permit, he told the throngs of violent demonstrators, “by all means, exercise your first Amendment rights.”
