Keith Ellison and Chris Fields also took to YouTube to make their case to voters.

On his campaign website, challenger Chris Fields argued that the unemployment is driven by policies like those Ellison supports. Job growth is at pathetic levels. Americans are out of work.

That way, the businesses will have to hire legions …
