According to a new poll, Republican AG candidate Jim Schultz holds a 7% lead in the race for Minnesota Attorney General.

The poll found Schultz has 49% support while incumbent Keith Ellison only has 42%. 9% remain undecided in the race. Republicans are trying to win their first statewide race in Minnesota in 16 years.

KTSP reported:

Minnesota Republicans are seeking to break a 16-year losing streak in statewide races, and 2022 could be shaping up to be the year it happens.

Republicans lead the races for attorney general and state auditor and remain within striking distance in the secretary of state campaign even though the Democratic incumbent currently leads in our latest KSTP/SurveyUSA poll. However, they trail in the race for Minnesota governor, the biggest prize at stake this year.

Another significant development in our poll is Republican Jim Schultz taking the lead over DFL incumbent Keith Ellison with a week to go before the election. Schultz leads 49% to 42% with 9% undecided. Ellison led by 6 points in our poll in early September and by 2 points in early October.
