I happen to be one of his constituents too and I want him to represent all of his district by working on the economy not taking one of his "mission" trips again...... And to think this guy gets elected by a 2 to 1 margin....

As noted, Ellison wins by huge margins. He must be making the vast majority of his constituents, of which I am one, happy. Democracy in action.

He obviously ain't there for vacation. And I'm guessing 100 people didn't sign up to follow him, unlike the boondoggles to China in recent years.

A stable government in Somalia is something all Minnesotans should hope for. Think of the possibilities!

It's probably not a bad thing he visited. That said I can't stand the guy... and I'm a DFLer. Too bad he has the position until he decides he doesn't want it.

I live in this district. I couldn't support Martin Sabo when he held the position. Looking at who we have now (Ellison) I wish Sabo was President!

People complain about Michele Bachmann when Ellison is the real embarrassment. Why is the media give him a pass?
