Despite a near-record thrashing in the 2008 5th District congressional race, conservative minister Barb Davis White will again take on Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison.
Minnesota Independent says that she actually announced her run two months ago, but it received very little attention.
Her website notes that while she garnered only 22 percent of the vote in 2008, it was, after all, her first campaign.
And a statement says:
In 2010, however, Davis White believes that the concern about the direction of the country and economy will overshadow party lines in favor of conservative fiscal policy and smaller government.
