MANKATO, MINN - Debra Hilstrom is one of five candidates campaigning to replace Attorney General Lori Swanson.

Hilstrom stopped by KEYC News 12's studios to spread her message.
 
 "While we've been traveling the state we've been hearing a lot of concerns given the flooding that people want to make sure that people don't  trying to scam them or cheat them as they need work and that things that aren't covered by insurance that there's somewhere to go to help." said Hilstrom. "Of course the state has a program, we certainly would be helpful to anyone that needed assistance."

"We've also been hearing about the opioid epidemic and that is something people are very concerned about and they want somebody to be held accountable for it."
 
Hilstrom faces off against DFL–endorsed candidate Matt Pelikan and Representative Keith Ellison in August's primary.
