Minnesota voters elected the nation’s first Muslim member of Congress. The winner, Keith Ellison, said, "We tried to pull people together on things we all share, things that are important to everyone."  He said his campaign united labor, minority communities and peace activists. "We were able to bring in Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists," he said. "We brought in everybody." (AP reports)
