U.S. Senate Race
Someone has a sense of humor in Minnesota’s U.S. Senate race, but it’s not the former “Saturday Night Live” writer and comedian. As front-running Sen. Al Franken sticks with sober ads highlighting his work on issues including the mortgage crisis and mental health in schools, it’s Republican challenger Mike McFadden who is bringing the funny.
During his weekly radio address to the nation, President Obama explained more about the operations he authorized in Iraq. The Republican Response was given by U.S. Senate candidate from Minnesota, Mike McFadden.
St. Louis County Board Chairman Chris Dahlberg, who bills himself as a pragmatic fiscal conservative, has become Minnesota’s latest Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Al Franken.
During last night’s Vikings game, Kurt Bills ran an ad claiming Amy Klobuchar covered up for Tom Petters and failed to prosecute him while she was Hennepin County Attorney.
A third Minnesota Republican is moving ahead with a bid to unseat Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar in next year’s U.S. Senate race.
