First Muslim Congressman?
Keith Ellison won Tuesday's Democratic primary in his district in Minneapolis, MN.
With his district being overwhelmingly Democratic, it's pretty much a given that he will be the first Muslim Congressman.
To make things even better -- he's progressive, as a politician and as a Muslim. He got endorsements from the envioronmental, feminist, labor, latino and jewish groups. He even opposed a ban against gay marriage. And he's not afraid to say that his Muslim faith inspires his values.
I think I may have found a new hero.
