The major party 5th District congressional candidates will be in the MPR studios with Gary Eichten on Friday at 11 AM. DFL-er Keith Ellison, Republican Alan Fine, and the Independence Party’s Tammy Lee. Fine harshly criticized Ellison at a news conference on Wednesday, one day after Ellison won the DFL primary. This should be a good one.
