Senator Al Franken
Two former leaders in Minnesota’s Independence Party have endorsed Republican candidate Mike McFadden in his bid to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Al Franken. Former Independence Party Chairman Jack Uldrich and former House candidate David Dillon both threw their support behind McFadden on Monday.
Senator Al Franken is making the rounds at the Minnesota State Fair. On Sunday, he sat down with WCCO’s Roshini Rajkumar, the host of News and Views, and talked about the campaign.
U.S. Sen. Al Franken says he regrets a video in which he’s shown holding two traffic cones to his chest like breasts.

U.S. Sen Al Franken has won the endorsement of Minnesota Democrats for a second term. Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party convention delegates in Duluth backed him by acclamation and welcomed him to the stage at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center.
After elaborate videos, sharp-toned speeches and even indoor fireworks, Minnesota Republicans are voting to back a candidate for U.S. Senate. Half a dozen candidates vied Friday for the GOP endorsement at the state convention, with the winner likely having to overcome an August primary challenge to face Democratic Sen.
