Rep. Keith Ellison, former Bernie supporter, to spin for Clinton at debate
September 26, 2016 — 7:07am
WASHINGTON -- Rep. Keith Ellison will be in Hillary Clinton's spin room at Hofstra University tonight.
Ellison, a former Bernie Sanders supporter, will travel to New York to be apart of the mob of Clinton supporters who "spin" her win to reporters before and after the debate. Those in the spin room also take down high moments for Donald Trump and "fact-check" whatever he says, spinning one-liners into positive moments for Clinton.
Trump was known during the GOP primary debates to visit the spin room himself and promote his appearance to reporters, though it is highly unlikely he will do that tonight.
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."
