BREAKING NEWS – Minneapolis, Minnesota – A Democratic candidate for the Minnesota House ended his campaign Sunday, hours after he tweeted that the Islamic State group “isn’t necessarily evil” and its members were doing what they thought was best for their community. Dan Kimmel, 63, announced the end of his bid for office on his campaign website and Twitter account. He said Saturday evening’s tweet was in response to a statement made during a candidate debate, not in response to Friday’s violent attacks in Paris that left more than 120 people dead and more than 350 wounded. Kimmel later doubled down in his position stating “Many world leaders have been accused of doing some awful things have in the long run made their nations greater, which includes Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and that witch in the Chronicles of Narnia.”
