Meet MN Governor and Lt. Governor Candidates Lori Swanson and Rick Nolan
Attorney General Lori Swanson gets results and makes a positive difference in the lives of all Minnesotans.
Too often, we cringe at the tasteless comments in the news today. Lori has led a distinguished career that reflects pride in Minnesota. No political bombast—just lots of results.
Lori has represented her fellow Minnesotans as a state public official for nearly 20 years. She was elected Attorney General in 2006 and twice reelected by large margins. She made history by becoming the state’s first female Attorney General in 2006. Before that, Lori served as Solicitor General of the State of Minnesota for four years. Prior to that, she was appointed at age 32 to the position of Deputy Attorney General, one of the youngest people to hold the position.
Before entering public service, Lori was an attorney in private practice, where she represented patients who were denied coverage for lifesaving treatment by their health insurance companies. She represented women throughout the country and never lost one of these cases.
In 2004, Lori was appointed by Alan Greenspan to the Consumer Advisory Council of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in Washington, D.C. Lori was elevated to Vice Chair of the Council in 2005. In 2006, Lori (a Democrat) was appointed by the conservative Federal Reserve Board as Chair of the Consumer Advisory Council.
