Obama Endorses Full Slate of Minnesota Democrats, But Not Ellison

Former President Barack Obama endorsed full slates of candidates in states across the country on Monday, but the list is making news for at least one name left off of the list.

Despite endorsing candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, Senate, House, and state house races in Minnesota, Obama chose not to endorse Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the Democratic National Committee’s vice chair and candidate for attorney general.

Karen Monahan, Ellison’s ex-girlfriend, came forward last month and alleged that Ellison physically and verbally abused her. The revelations were made public when Monahan’s son published them on Facebook.

Ellison denies the allegation.

Still, the issue has dogged Ellison for the past several weeks, and could have contributed to Obama’s decision not to endorse the DNC official.

Obama endorsed attorney general candidates in Arizona and Nevada.
