CD5: Musical Chairs and Debates

Keith Ellison (MN-05), local DFA Link endorsed candidate, took part in two debates last night:

1) Air America's Minnesota Matters live radio debate at Rossi's in Downtown Minneapolis
2) Jewish Community Relations Council's debate at Beth El Synagogue in St. Louis Park

Polinaut and MinMon had interesting event recaps. MPR now has the audio up of the later debate. The Air America debate audio can be found here. The republican candidate skipped the first debate at the last minute (without an explanation) so a photo of him was placed in his seat. At the second debate the green candidate was stuck in the audience, despite attempts from the the democrat and independent candidates to have him join them on the stage. It looks like seating at debates is becoming a campaign issue.

Feel like you've missed out by not being there? What to see who attends the next round of debates and where they will be seated? There are two more debates this week that you can attend:
