(Updated with new info that video was not produced by Greene's campaign)
Minnesota may be known for its months-long recounts and professional wrestling governors, but here’s a campaign ad from one race that might top anything our state has seen in terms of odd politics.
Alvin Greene, a surprise candidate — to say the least — who won the Democratic senate primary in South Carolina last month, released the “official Alvin Greene rap” this week had a rap video made about him that he says "sounds good," but his campaign did not produce.
Greene's race against Republican Sen. Jim DeMint has emerged as one of the strangest stories this election season, where an unemployed military veteran who didn’t campaign won the Democratic nomination.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
