Franken to Make Announcement Tomorrow

Sen. Al Franken’s (D-MN) office said the senator will make a public announcement tomorrow amid mounting calls for his resignation, CBS News reports.

Should Franken resign, the process to replace him is clear:

  • Since it’s more than six weeks before the primary for that Senate seat, Gov. Mark Dayton would appoint someone to fill the seat.
  • There would be an election in 2018 to find someone to fill out the rest of his term until the 2020 election.
