ellison: the best hope

Minnesotans have the opportunity to send a real progressive visionary to Congress from the Fifth District. Keith Ellison, a two-term state representative from north Minneapolis, would also be the first person of color to represent Minnesota in Congress. The Fifth District primary will be a referendum on the war, single payer health care and whether the whitest large city in America, Minneapolis, can elect a Black Muslim to Congress. (see story here)
