Keith Ellison Won in All but Two of Patch Cities' Precincts

Republican Chris Fields did better in areas Patch covers than in the Fifth District overall.

Patch cities gave U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) one shy of 76,000 votes in the Nov. 6, 2012 election that returned him to Congress for a fourth term. His Republican challenger, Chris Fields, got fewer than half that number of votes from areas Patch covers: 33,623.

Only two precincts out of 76 in Patch cities favored Fields over Ellison. Both precincts were in Edina—a new part of the Fifth District, added when redistricting redrew political boundaries based on the 2010 U.S. Census.

Edina gave Fields the most support of the six Patch cities in the Fifth Congressional District, with 44.52 percent of Edina's votes going to the Republican. Sixteen precincts in neighboring Southwest Minneapolis gave Fields the least support he enjoyed in Patch's coverage areas, with 19.57 percent.
