Contact: David Lewis, 202-531-7547, media@GaryInTheHouse.com

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 21, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- On Monday, October 24, 10:00 A.M., Gary Boisclair will announce primary against incumbent Keith Ellison, District 5. Gary Boisclair (Biography below) will challenge Mr. Ellison in a Democrat (DFL) primary to Represent Minnesota's 5th Congressional District.

Location: U.S. District Court, Plaza, 300 South 4th Street, Minneapolis, MN

Time: 10:00 A.M.

Gary Boisclair states:

    "I intend to defeat Mr. Ellison soundly in this primary, based upon the issues at hand. Congressman Keith Ellison has failed to represent the ethics and beliefs of this district.

    "At the onset of his tenure, Ellison took his Oath of office with his hand on a Quran -- a book which mandates violence against Jews and Christians.

    "Ellison consistently legislates for socialist programs, which in effect make us the slave labor force of the federal government. Under his agenda, we are enslaved to heavy taxation, crushing debt, runaway inflation, and we are forced to 'give' our hard earned money to his favorite 'entitlements.'

    "But Mr. Ellison's track record is even more nefarious. Mr. Ellison has voted repeatedly to fund Planned Parenthood, a racist organization with a long history of discrimination against minorities, which has consistently targeted black and Hispanic minorities for the abortion of their children. Planned Parenthood is a racist, criminal syndicate, which covers up the crimes of pedophiles, rapists and sex traffickers; it slaughters nearly 1,000 unborn babies every day, and Keith Ellison is their brazen champion, as he hypocritically parades his Progressive Caucus motto, 'Liberty and Justice for ALL.' (caps brought to you by Rep. Ellison)

    "I urge all DFLers to put their most sacred beliefs about God, ethics, and human life first in this election, and to vote for a candidate who truly represents those beliefs."
Mr. Boisclair will unveil his first three TV ads on Monday, October 24th, at www.GaryInTheHouse.com.
