Franken Takes Political Act Across State Lines

Minnesota Senate candidate Al Franken (D) headlined the state Democratic Party’s Founder’s Dinner in neighboring Wisconsin on Monday night.

The former “Saturday Night Live” writer, who’s competing against wealthy attorney Mike Ciresi for the Minnesota Democratic Party’s endorsement and the right to challenge Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.), was scheduled to be the special guest at the $100-a-person reception in Milwaukee.

For $250, donors could attend a “pre-event” as well as the reception.
