CD5 Candidate Debate

Ellison Challengers Debate, Nov. 29th at the Uptown VFW

Sponsored by Senate District 60 Republicans

Senate District 60 Republicans of South Minneapolis will partnered with the CD 5 Republicans to host a debate between three potential challengers to Congressman Keith Ellison in the upcoming 2012 U.S. House election. Participants included Michael Katch, Lynne Torgerson, and Chris Fields. The event was moderated by Bob Davis on November 29th at the James Ballentine VFW, 2916 Lyndale Ave. South.

Bob Davis is the co host of the popular morning show ‘Davis and Emmer’ 6-9 am weekdays, on Twin Cities News Talk AM 1130, and the host of the Twin Cities News Talk AM 1130 ‘Roundtable’ featuring all twincitiesnewstalk.com commentators on Saturday mornings.

Mark Johnson, SD 60 GOP Chair: “We are delighted to invite these candidates together to have a friendly discussion before the residents of CD 5. These days people wonder whether our elected officials are working for Washington or working for us. We believe the Republicans of this district can offer a better alternative to what we’ve been getting, and this debate will help us decide what that alternative will be.”

The debate was open to the public. About 75 people attended.
