Minnesota House candidate uses racial slur in campaign video

Kyle Greene is a Minnesota House candidate

ST. PAUL -- Minnesota House candidate Kyle Green, who lists himself on official paperwork as "independent-judicial reform," shook things up in his west-central Minnesota race.

Green ends a 33-second campaign video with: "I want to be your state representative. I want to be your public servant. And I want to be your n -----."

The candidate says he is American Indian, African-American and white. His video appears on a Facebook page "Kyle Greene for State Representative District 18A."

Green is trying to unseat veteran lawmaker Dean Urdahl. Green and Urdahl both live near Grove City.
