Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District may be one of the most liberal districts in the nation.  It sent Keith Ellison to Congress in 2006 and kept him there in 2008 by a 48-point margin.  It’s a D+23 district according to the Cook Report, but that almost certainly understates the Sisyphean task any Republican would have in pushing Ellison aside, even in a year like this.  Instead of Sisyphus pushing the boulder up the hill, Joel Demos gives us a slightly more modern take on how this task looks — and what it will take to succeed:

Joel has the unenviable task of door-knocking in this district, but from what I hear around the campfire, he’s taking that task and others very seriously.  The ad may be a bit lighthearted, but Demos wants to beat Ellison and thinks he can do it.  Click the link above to discover more.  I’d be happy to see Ellison retired in this cycle; perhaps Demos can do it, or maybe Barb Davis-White can knock him out of office in the primary.  Either way, it would be a monster win for MN-05 … and for the US.
