Keith Ellison on Lynne Torgerson campaign: one of ‘hate, division, and fear’

Rep. Keith Ellison sent a fundraising pitch to supporters on Monday calling out his newly announced challenger Lynne Torgerson for her comments calling him a “radical Muslim fundamentalist.” Torgerson, who announced her campaign at Tea Party Nation on Thursday, garnered only 3 percent against Ellison’s 69 percent in the last election.

“It’s clear that Torgerson intends to run a campaign based on hate, division, and fear,” Ellison said. “Just like in 2010, we’re not going to let our opponent’s divisive rhetoric set the tone of this campaign. Instead, we’re going to keep pushing for good jobs, affordable health care, and equality for all people.”

Ellison added, “Help defeat extremism by investing in our campaign. Unlike our opponent, we’ll continue organizing voters around our belief in liberty and justice for ALL.”

Torgerson has launched a campaign website and blog on which she describes herself as a “public speaker, lawyer, litigator, Constitutional expert, Congressional candidate, opinion writer, teacher and pro-Israel Christian who recently won Attorney of the Year. She wishes to educate, expose and stop the political ideological part of Islam and protect American freedoms of speech and religion.”

In 2009 she told the Minnesota Independent that she believes Muslims “have teachings that are essentially criminal, and her campaign site at the time, citing the terrorist attacks of 9/11, stated that “Islam [is] conducting an act of war against my country.”

Though Torgerson ran as an independent in 2010, she’s included many photos of herself with Republican elected officials and activists on her campaign’s Facebook page, including Tom Emmer, Sen. David Hann, Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch and Sen. Julianne Ortmann.
