Attorney General Keith Ellison's campaign held a Doorknock and Rally for Environmental Justice event Saturday in Minneapolis.

Keith Ellison offered two disparate futures to Minneapolis supporters, whose turnout next month could determine whether he spends four more years as the state's lawyer-in-chief.

"It is stark," the Democratic attorney general told dozens of volunteers preparing to knock on doors Saturday in the city's southwest corner. "Women's rights versus not. Consumer action versus not. Workers rights versus not. Climate action versus more crazy, mad, just ignoring the damage to our climate."

The former Fifth District congressman was on familiar turf, talking about familiar issues. Civil rights. Worker protections. The environment. Ellison's supporters said he has championed the same themes for decades, throughout his professional evolution from defense attorney to state legislator to congressman then attorney general.
