KSTP-TV says Al Franken may announce his intention to run for Mark Dayton's seat on his radio show this morning:
Just one day after U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton decided not to run for a second term, comedian Al Franken may be throwing his hat into the ring.If you want to listen in, click here or on the Air America button on the right.
Last year, Franken said he wanted to run for the Senate in 2008. But last night he told [KSTP] that he is now considering his candidacy for next year.
Franken, a Minnesota native, plans to make an announcement live on his national radio show in Washington D.C. this morning.
UPDATE: And, doggonit, he's not running.
Citing his two year obligation to Air America, Franken says he will not run for Dayton's seat. But he did leave the door open -- waaaaay open -- for a run in 2008.
