Who is Lynne Torgerson?
My name is Lynne Torgerson. I am running for Minnesota Attorney General.
Lynne Torgerson is the person to beat Keith Ellison.
Lynne Torgerson grew up in Minnetonka and Minneapolis, Minnesota. She grew up gymnastics, at one point placing 6th in the Nation. She describes her gymnastic coach and pastor as being the people who have had the most positive influence on her life, to whom she is grateful.
After graduating from high school, Lynne Torgerson attended the University of Minnesota. When she began college, she was seeking a career through which she could help people. While there she lived in the dorms, a sorority (Alpha Omicron Pi), and apartments. She graduated from the University of Minnesota with a double major in Political Science and Psychology.
Thereafter, Ms. Torgerson attended William Mitchell College of Law. During law school, she found a fire lit within her in relation to cases involving Constitutional rights. Our constitutional rights were promulgated for our benefit, and, our protection. Also during law school, Ms. Torgerson became a Member of Law Review, participated in Moot Court, was a Judicial Intern to The Honorable Henry W. McCarr, and was the recipient of The Honorable Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Douglas K. Amdahl Scholarship. She graduated with Honors. Ms. Torgerson became a lawyer because she wanted to help people.
Ms. Torgerson is admitted to State Bar of Minnesota, the United States District Court, District of Minnesota, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.
After law school, Ms. Torgerson obtained a coveted position as a Law Clerk with The Honorable Ralph J. Geffen, Magistrate Judge, United States District Court, Los Angeles, California.
After returning to Minnesota, Ms. Torgerson founded her own successful law practice out of downtown Minneapolis. (Being a small business owner, she understands the concerns of business owners). Ms. Torgerson practices in the areas of criminal defense, Second Amendment/Gun Rights, and expungements. Ms. Torgerson became a criminal defense lawyer, despite being abhorred for same, one, because she wanted to protect constitutional rights, and secondly, because she was born with a heart of mercy for her clients. People need to be treated fairly by the court, guilty and innocent alike; otherwise, we would be no better than the former Soviet Union, or, China. Overall, Ms. Torgerson has been protecting the constitutional rights of her clients for decades. Ms. Torgerson now wants to protect the Constitutional rights of the good people of the State of Minnesota.
Ms. Torgerson has won gun rights cases in 36 different counties of the State of Minnesota, as well as the Minnesota Court of Appeals. In 2009, Ms. Torgerson won a case at the United States Supreme Court, based upon the 6th Amendment Right of Confrontation, via a denial of certiorari, after prevailing at the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States District Court, District of Minnesota. The issue primarily involved the 6th Amendment Right of Confrontation. Ms. Torgerson has been told that her case has been used as curriculum in law school(s). In 2010, Ms. Torgerson was awarded an Attorney of Year, by the Minnesota Lawyer Newspaper.
Ms. Torgerson is a member of the Holy Roman Catholic Church, and, Living Word Christian Center. In the past, Ms. Torgerson was Minneapolis City Director for Christians United for Israel.
Lynne Torgerson is the person to beat Keith Ellison. Why am I running?
I am the person to beat Keith Ellison.
This country was founded upon Judeo Christian principles. That is why the United States of America has been so successful, so exceptional. This country has been blessed by God. These values have been instilled in me. We need to have people with the right values in office, in order to have the right values instituted in government.
So, I am running for office because I believe I have the right values. And, from where do my values mainly come?
- Judeo Christian principles
- reading the Constitution
- having a strong work ethic.
So, I am running because I believe I have the right values. My decisions and efforts in office would flow from what I have been taught about right and wrong. In addition, I have extensive training and knowledge of constitutional rights. I strongly support constitutional rights, and would work to protect the constitutional rights of the citizens of the United States. Again, we need to have people with the right values in office to have the right values instituted in government.
- Second Amendment rights, the right to keep and bear arms
- The right to work and make a living (no forced business closures by government and no threats of jail or fines for working)
- The right to vote and have votes counted accurately
- The right to make our own choices about health, masks, vaccines, social distancing, quarantining, contact tracing, and that businesses and employers and government cannot force people to get vaccines, etc.
- The right to a Republican form of government, which shows that Governor Walz’ orders are unconstitutional, unnecessary and destructive
- The right to have our government quell riots and prevent the destruction of property
- Stopping the propagation of racial hatred
Please support Lynne Torgerson for Minnesota Attorney General. Thank you.
