Politico reports that Ellison is “bored” in the House and wants to move his career in another direction. The AG seat is expected to open up because Lori Swanson, the sitting attorney general, will most likely run for governor. Ellison is also reportedly unhappy at the DNC under chairman Tom Perez, to whom Ellison finished a close second in last year’s DNC chair election.
Ellison made headlines earlier this month when he endorsed an Antifa “handbook” that he says will “strike fear in the heart of” President Trump.
Conservative Review found that the Antifa book explicitly endorses physical violence against political opponents. “In truth, violence represents a small though vital sliver of anti-fascist activity,” one of the pro-violence passages from the book reads.
Regarding unprovoked “occasional violence,” the Ellison-approved book adds:
“Fascist violence often necessitates self-defense—although anti-fascists challenge conventional interpretations of self-defense grounded in individualistic personal ethics by legitimating offensive tactics in order to forestall the potential need for literal self-defense down the line.”
