Franken Looks Like Heavy Favorite for Re-election

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) "looked to be a top GOP pickoff target next year after his agonizing seven-month recount and legal battle put him in the Senate in 2009 by a mere 312 votes," Politico reports.

"Yet, in a turnabout few could've predicted, Franken has yet to draw a Republican opponent. The GOP looks likely to choose between relatively unknown state legislators, inexperienced businessmen or a conservative radio host with a history of controversial statements."
