AIR AMERICA RADIO's AL FRANKEN is making further exploratory moves towards a Senate run in MINNESOTA, telling the ASSOCIATED PRESS that he has called Democtaric legislators in the state to discuss his possible run against incumbent Sen. NORM COLEMAN (R-MN) next year.
FRANKEN said he has also been talking to other DEMOCRATIC-FARMER-LABOR PARTY figures to discuss the pros and cons of a run, adding, "It's unknown how people will respond to a comedian running for the Senate. I need to figure out a way to let people know I'm extremely serious about MINNESOTANS and their lives." He said that he hopes to decide whether to run in the next few weeks.
