From 2007 to 2019, Keith Ellison represented Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives, where he championed consumer, worker, environmental, and civil-and human-rights protections for Minnesotan’s.  

Before being elected to Congress, Attorney General Ellison served four years in the Minnesota House of Representatives.  Prior to entering elective office, he spent 16 years as an attorney specializing in civil-rights and defense law, including five years as executive director of the Legal Rights Center.
