Former Minnesota House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher, state Rep. Ilhan Omar and state Sen. Patricia Torres Ray are battling for U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison's open congressional seat in the Aug. 14 primary. All three candidates said they're ready to take on President Donald Trump's administration if elected.
