DescriptionWashington, D.C. (AHN)-Incoming freshman congressman Rep.-elect Keith Ellison opted out of meeting President Bush, but he had a good excuse: another meeting which he considered too important to miss.

The Minnesota Democrat, who is replacing outgoing Rep. Martin Sabo, tells reporters, "I went to the AFL-CIO reception, because I wanted to meet and greet leaders of labor, and get to know them. Those are the people who I came here to support."
