No Franken-Coleman Rematch in 2014



Text  



Who’s running against comedian-turned-Minnesota senator Al Franken in 2014?

Not the man he beat, former senator Norm Coleman.

Coleman declared on Twitter,

[I] want to mentor a new generation of optimistic, limited government focused leaders who aren’t afraid to find common ground to solve problems. I will focus time and energy helping Minnesota elect a senator and governor who support free enterprise, efficient government and seek to bring folks together.

He added, “As a minority party w/ a diminishing base, Republican Party would do well to focus on gaining more converts than enforcing conformity.”
