Lynne Torgerson to challenge Ellison again, calls him ‘radical Islamist’

Lynne Torgerson, who garnered little support last year running as an Independent against Rep.

Lynne Torgerson, who garnered little support last year running as an Independent against Rep. Keith Ellison in the 5th District, plans to try again, reports Minnesota Independent:

Announcing her plans on the Tea Party Nation website, Torgerson called Ellison a “radical Islamist” and said he “fails to oppose banning Islamic Sharia law in the United States.”

Notes the story:

Torgerson lost the race in 2010, garnering 3 percent of the vote versus Ellison’s 69 percent. During that bid she secured the backing of the Tea Party Nation.
