Minnesota voters heading to the polls on Tuesday will be reminded of domestic abuse allegations against Democratic attorney general nominee Keith Ellison.
A new statewide ad highlights charges that Ellison physically and verbally abused women. The issue has dogged the congressman throughout his bid to become Minnesota's next attorney general.
"Keith Ellison's former girlfriend says he repeatedly assaulted her—and forcibly dragged her off her bed by her ankles while screaming profanities," the ad says. "In 2006, another girlfriend accused Ellison of abuse, saying he 'berated' and 'pushed' her."
The Ellison campaign did not respond to multiple requests for comment. The candidate has denied the allegations.
