Minnesota Republican will run for Al Franken's Senate seat

  • Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy Regrets Calling for Franken's Resignation

"I'm Karin Housley and I'm running for U.S. Senate", she said in a video posted on her Twitter account. Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, said that Sen.

"I definitely think he should not resign", Manchin told CNN on Monday.

Franken announced his resignation earlier this month after several women came forward to accuse the former comedian of groping them and kissing them against their will. "I know who I really am". And whatever the outcome is, I will live with that. "The Ethics Committee should have been allowed to investigate and make its recommendation", Leahy said in a statement.

Following his announcement that he would resign from Congress, two Democratic senators said that Franken should not have stepped down before the Senate Ethics Committee had completed its investigation into the Minnesota Democrat. I would watch closely for signs that that it will give him a pass. The rhetoric of "justice" will be employed, while simultaneously vowing to hunt down real "anti-woman" offenders (i.e., Republicans).

Days after Franken said he planned to step down, Minnesota's Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton chose Smith as his successor.

It's a ideal Christmas gift for conservatives: Senate Democrats beclowning themselves in defense of a professional clown who sits among them.

Franken's promise to resign "in the coming weeks" was an obvious move to hedge against the possibility of Moore being defeated.

Franken declared not long ago that he would leave from the Senate despite inappropriate behavior affirmations. Moore, who was accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl, later lost the Alabama election to Democrat Doug Jones, although he has thus far refused to concede the race.
