The Republican challenging Keith Ellison for Minnesota attorney general slammed the congressman in a new attack ad Tuesday, citing the domestic violence allegations that have been raised against him.
“Extreme Keith Ellison supported cop killers, open borders and worse yet, Keith Ellison has been accused of domestic violence by multiple women,” the 30-second ad for Doug Wardlow said.
Karen Monahan, a political activist, alleged Ellison sent her multiple abusive text messages and once dragged her off a bed while shouting profanities at her.
“The TV ad contrasts Keith Ellison’s extreme views with Doug Wardlow’s pledge to stand up for the rights of all Minnesotans,” Billy Grant, Wardlow’s campaign manager, told the Star Tribune.
The TV ad is Wardlow’s first in his campaign for attorney general, the Star Tribune reported.
