All that aside, Demos has released a very well done ad.
Ellison's ties to CAIR are very disturbing and should be a major campaign issue. Demos has an opportunity to exploit that issue but not sure if he will.
With the Ground Zero Mosque in the news daily at this point, Demos should press Ellison on the matter as well as the incumbent's ties to CAIR. Via Discover the Networks:
During the 2006 campaign, the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) Executive Director Nihad Awad spoke at an August 25th fundraiser for Ellison, who accepted thousands of dollars in donations from Awad and another CAIR leader. In October of that year, Ellison traveled to Florida on a fundraising tour that included a party hosted by Altaf Ali, CAIR's state director there.The truth about CAIR is coming to light, albeit slowly. Whether Demos wins or not, like Toomey in Pennsylvania, he can do the nation a greater service by shining a light on his opponent.
