Keith Ellison gets a challenger

DFL Rep. Keith Ellison may be in one of the safest congressional districts in the state but that doesn’t mean he won’t have challengers. The Federal Election Commission reports today that Lynne Torgerson has filed paperwork to run in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District.

Torgerson, a private attorney, has run as a registered independent in the past. In 2008, she ran for Minnesota House District 59A.

Torgerson’s website says she’s conservative on some issues including abortion, defining marriage between one man and one woman and defending the 2nd Amendment.

  • I wouldn’t be surprised if the next time she’s ever even mentioned is election day. I exaggerate slightly.

    Whoa. This lady is nasty. The most room on her issues page goes to trashing Islam saying how evil it is and that it shouldn’t count as a religion under first amendment. Also it is not surprising that an anti-choice candidate has not a single word under her header for women’s rights.

    I believe that Barb Davis White is running as a Republican candidate. Though, her site seems to mention all sorts of towns that are not in the 5th District of Minnesota…
