The American Spirit

The Fifth Congressional District needs a dedicated representative who fights for all people

Members of the House of Representatives are elected to represent their constituents and put America first.  

Too many congressional members choose to put special interests ahead of our interests and their friends in Congress before their constituents.

Keith Ellison chooses to represent only a small slice of people who agree with him.

Ellison defends his buddies like Charlie Rangel and Eric Holder. He stands up for Travon Martin’s family but then works to deny Brian Terry’s family justice.

Serving in the House of Representatives doesn’t come with an expectation that you will protect special interest groups and your political allies.

Rather, it comes with a responsibility to put America first in order to move us forward.

For more than 21 years as a United States Marine I have put America first. I did not survive a tough inner city upbringing and two extended combat tours to come home and see my country fail. 

The spirit of America is powerful and has been responsible for our country becoming the greatest democracy this world has ever seen.

It’s time to unleash the spirit of America and let it propel us forward.

Chris Fields is the alternative to Keith Ellison in Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District. Chris is a retired combat veteran who honorably served his country for more than 21 years in the United States Marine Corps. His message of reform, responsibility, and accountability is encouraging people from diverse backgrounds and political persuasions to Come Together to support a leader that will make real and tangible changes to a broken political system.

5th Congressional District needs a Congressman who fights for all people

Nothing here of substance; just abusive ad hominem attacks and regurgitated rhetoric. The voters of the 5th Congressional District have seen these types of attacks against Keith Ellison over and over and over again and they never work because the voters of the 5th CD know that Keith Ellison is one of us.

How is Ellison one of you? Instead doing ANYTHING for the people of Minneapolis he'd rather hang out with his buddies in Washington and pass bills aimed at Asian Carp rather than bills aimed at job creation or education. Fields is the most credible candidate we've had in a long time. He has unique ideas and doesn't tote a party line. Can't wait for November.

Chris, So all you have is sad attacks on people but no track record of actually doing anything but running your mouth...give it a rest...Patch readers deserve more than seeing Patch turn into the Chris Fields sour grapes line... CP
