My name is Matt Pelikan. 

I grew up as a gay kid in small town Minnesota, with Paul Wellstone as my hometown hero. I’ve worked hard, organizing since I was a teenager while I washed dishes at night. As a student activist, I stood up against the Iraq War, after college I organized for progressive causes in Minnesota and around the country. I went to law school at the University of Minnesota, I clerked for the Minnesota Supreme Court, and worked as a lawyer with individuals and businesses. I spent the last election fighting voter suppression in last year’s presidential election.

I’m not running to represent the special interests—they already have great representation. I’m running for Attorney General to represent you.  

With the will and the vision—and your support—the Attorney General’s office has the power to fight back. Together, we can make a difference for Minnesota and for all of us.

Please chip in whatever you can afford to my campaign.
