A Democratic candidate for the Minnesota state House, Dan Kimmel, ended his campaign Sunday after tweeting a sympathetic tweet toward ISIS. Here is a screenshot of the tweet, which has since been deleted:

He rushed to walk his statement back last night.
But the damage had already been done. He announced this morning the end of his campaign.
Minnesota liberals: national laughing stocks again. #DanKimmel

#DanKimmel You are clearly delusional and a threat if ever allowed in a position to protect the homeland. Sad

Between comments from the President, Bernie Sanders, and Dan Kimmel, I'd like some clarification of what the Democrat position on ISIS is.
