MINNEAPOLIS – Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN) released the following statement after the Democratic Platform Drafting Committee completed its work in St. Louis, Missouri, forwarding a draft platform to the full Platform Committee which will meet in Orlando on July 8:
Rep. Keith Ellison is not happy. In fact, he’s “incensed.”
The source of the Minneapolis Democrat’s pique? A new political attack ad has cropped up on D.C. airwaves in recent months, and it uses a quote from Ellison to attack an institution the congressman actually supports: The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
I’m honored that so many dedicated, loyal, and faithful public servants are standing together with our community for Bernie Sanders.
We, the undersigned state senators, representatives, and local elected officials of Minnesota, endorse Bernie Sanders for President in the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party Caucus on Tuesday, March 1.
We believe Minnesotans and Americans together are ready for a bold vision for the future. A future built upon clean energy and jobs for working families - where corporations are not people and money does not equal free speech.
