May 20, 2020
WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today, the Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) released the following statement from Executive Director Sean Rankin applauding DAGA Co-Chair Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum on her primary win and her clear path to victory in November.
Statement from Sean Rankin, Executive Director of the Democratic Attorneys General Association:
“In the midst of a world seemingly turning upside down for so many people in this pandemic, I find comfort and hope in Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum and her primary win today. This is a time when all on-lookers can recognize the difference between genuine public servants who are working to address constituents’ critical needs and those others who seem to leverage calamity for political purpose and personal gain. In Ellen Rosenblum, we all share a measured and fierce advocate with deep convictions who will act in the interests of all the people. I know that Attorney General Rosenblum will continue to work on behalf the people of Oregon when re-elected this Fall and concurrently provide leadership nationally against a reckless, fumbling, and dangerous Trump administration.
- Throughout her tenure as the Oregon Attorney General, AG Rosenblum garnered national recognition for her work combatting hate crimes, protecting Title X funding and reproductive rights, taking on student debt providers, and fighting back against the Trump administration.
- Oregon AG Ellen Rosenblum’s leadership as a Co-Chair of the Democratic Attorneys General Association has contributed to a successful transition of the Committee over the last few years, the launch of the 1881 Initiative, and to the election of the most diverse coalition of Democratic state Attorneys General in history in 2018.
- AG Rosenblum is the first woman to serve as Oregon Attorney General.
