(ABC 6 News) -- Minnesota's primary election is drawing near and candidates are touring the state campaigning.
On Wednesday, DFL candidate for Minnesota Attorney General Debra Hilstrom visited Rochester. Hilstrom is a prosecutor in Anoka County and served nine terms in the state house.
She is making a push to end opioid and elder care abuse while making sure everyone has access to good medical care.
"The attorney general's job has changed in the last two years. We've seen a lot more national lawsuits as well as taking on issues as corporations as non-profits get bigger and bigger. I want to use the skills that I've learned both in the legislature and in the courtroom to be Minnesota's advocate," Hilstrom said.
Hilstrom is up against Keith Ellison, Tom Foley, Mike Rothman and Matt Pelikan in the DFL primary.
