DescriptionRepublican Minnesota Attorney General candidate Doug Wardlow told a group of supporters that he would fire "42 Democratic attorneys right off the bat" and replace them with Republicans if he wins in November, according to a recording that Minnesota Public Radio News obtained.

"It's really exciting now to be in a position for the first time in a half century to take this office back," Wardlow said. "We're going to fire 42 Democratic attorneys right off the bat and get Republican attorneys in there."

His promise to clean out Democrats from the state's top law enforcement office stands in contrast to his campaign promise that he wouldn't be partisan. Wardlow has repeatedly criticized Democratic candidate Keith Ellison for being too political.
