Oops,i thought you meant franken was going to leave it after 1 term. If he is going for reelection then yeah its more difficult. Pawlenty might as well go for it as his national ambitions havent really materialized.Bala Verde said:Correct. Franken. But then again, it's difficult the first time. Second time you have an organization that works for you and you've had 6 years to build relations with constituents. His committee assignments are not something that would help him though, and I think Rs really dislike him. So you are right that it could be high on the list, but who will the run. T-Paw, Michele Bacherach, Coleman again... they also need an appealing candidate.
Good times; election 2014, haha.
