WMNF Drive-Time News Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:


In 2006, Minnesota’s Keith Ellison became the first Muslim ever elected to the U.S. Congress. WMNF’s Seán Kinane spoke with him on Saturday, before the Council on American-Islamic Relations banquet in Tampa. The second half of the interview begins with Rep. Ellison responding to Barack Obama’s first move as president-elect. Obama chose Rahm Emanuel as chief of staff. Emanuel is strongly pro-Israel.

“[I've met with Dr. Al-Arian's family] and I’ll be happy to meet with them again in the future.”
