I find this curious. Ellison, so far as a I know, has a safe district. So unless he's sees this as a steppingstone to higher office, or sees it as an office in which to engage in even more "progressive" meddling, I don't get it. Still it will be a blessing to have this annoying little personage off the national stage for awhile.

Rep. Keith Ellison announced Tuesday that he is running for attorney general of Minnesota, vowing to be the “People’s Lawyer” and signaling an interest in using the courts to thwart President Trump’s agenda.

Mr. Ellison announced his decision hours before Tuesday’s filing deadline for candidates in Minnesota and opened up a battle to replace him in the U.S. House five months out from the midterm elections.

“No one — not even a president — is above the law,” Mr. Ellison said in his announcement.

“From immigration reform to protecting our air and water, it has never been more important to have a leader as attorney general who can stand up against threats to our neighbors’ health and freedoms,” he said.

I think that gives his motivation... turn Minnesota into a sharia compliant, constitution defiant, anti-Christian, anti-observant Jew, sanctuary state.
