AUDIO: Hear the Low Points of Thursday's Fractious Ellison-Fields Debate

Listen to the name-calling and judge for yourself who was wrong.

The conversation between 5th District Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and GOP challenger Chris Fields got dirty during a heated debate on KFAI Radio Thursday morning. Both men got defensive when the other brought up sensitive subjects—namely references to one another's families and personal lives.

Listen to the low points in the audio above or visit KFAI-FM to hear the full debate.

I agree Amber. Even his campaign site is covered on doing the same thing. Some of the ads are pretty bad.

Who trust these clowns anyways? They are both suspect.

The time I saw Ellison do his acting,crying thing on camera--well, I just don't believe the guy. Fake.

I agree with AmberG. I've seen Chris Fields blog and it gave me a bad taste in my mouth. He was totally inappropriate in this interview and seems to be inappropriate in general. The first thing I thought when I read his blog is why isn't he talking about his political beliefs and objectives instead of insulting Ellison on a personal level. If this guy is as creepy as his first impression makes him seem, it's more like he is a stalker than a legitimate candidate. Ellison is being bullied and I will be judging him on his record instead of anything involving Fields. How do you think you would sound defending yourself against somebody like Fields?
