Harry Welty is running for the 8th Congressional District of Minnesota. As an independent he could choose whatever "banner" he wanted to run under and he chose "Unity" despite the lack of any official party in Minnesota with that name. It appears from his statements online that he chose "Unity" after hearing about and being inspired by Unity08.
Prior to running for Congress, Mr. Welty served on the Duluth School Board from 1995 to 1999 and then again from 2000 to 2004.
In 2002 Mr. Welty made an unsucessful bid for the Minnesota State House, leaving this campaign website in his wake: http://www.givemhellharry.org/
