The Soros family is getting involved the race for attorney general of Minnesota, throwing their money behind Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN).
Alexander Soros, son of Democratic megadonor George Soros, is backing Ellison for attorney general, donating to a pro-Ellison political action committee (PAC).
A recent finance report for the People’s Lawyer PAC shows Soros donated $100,000 this month to the PAC. People’s Lawyer describes Ellison as the “the progressive pioneer we need as attorney general.”
Doug Wardlow, GOP-endorsed candidate for attorney general, was quick to respond to the outside influence on the race. In a recent campaign email, Ellison blasting Republicans for taking “dark money.” Wardlow called out the hypocrisy, slamming Ellison for the connection to Soros.
“It is no surprise that the Soros family is attempting to influence the election in favor of Keith Ellison,” Wardlow said. “While Ellison sent out an email 3 days ago talking about “dark money” in the Attorney General’s race, he seems to have no problem with money from the Soros family coming to his aid.”
