Ellison is now the Minnesota attorney general who is taking over as lead prosecutor in George Floyd's death. Doing so is giving Ellison a national platform to talk about race in America. And while Ellison is careful not to talk about details of the criminal cases against four Minneapolis police officers, he's grabbing the opportunity to raise issues about police reform that he's worked on in the past.
