Al Franken Front Runner In Minnesota Senate Battle

So what ever happened to Al Franken? Well he is the leading contender for the Senate in Minnesota! His main rival for the Democratic nomination dropped from the primary race leaving Franken as the front runner. In a poll of potential voters Franken rides to victory over his Republican opponent incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman 49% to 46%.

Franken hasn’t been heard here in the DFW area since his show left Air America, and with no local Air America station in the DFW market not much has been heard from the comedian turned politician. Here’s hoping his campaign is successful, Washington needs more progressive Democrats!
