Ellison wins overwhelming endorsement from Take Action Minnesota

DFL-endorsed candidate Keith Ellison was the choice of more than 80 percent of Take Action Minnesota members who screened 5th Congressional District hopefuls at the organization's endorsement meeting Tuesday night. The results of the tally:

Keith Ellison 103 votes Jay Pond (Green Party candidate) 14 votes Mike Erlandson 4 votes Paul Ostrow 0 votes

Take Action Minnesota is a recent merger of Progressive Minnesota and the Minnesota Alliance for Progressive Action. The overwhelming margin for Ellison indicates that his progressive base has not been swayed by relentless criticism of his campaign in the media and blogosphere over much of this summer. In a mild surprise, Ember Reichgott Junge declined an invitation to appear and be screened about her positions on the issues.
