Al Gore campaigns for Al Franken in Minneapolis

Former Vice President Al Gore urged Minnesotans to vote for Al Franken at a DFL fundraiser at Northrop Auditorium on Saturday, reported The Pioneer Press.

"It is time to bring about a change in the course that our nation is following, it's time to elect Al Franken to the United States Senate," Gore said to a crowd of 1500 people.

Gore also made reference to the presidential election, saying "It's time to kick them out of there. It's not that complicated," reported The Star Tribune.

Franken returned Gore's praise, calling him "the best president we never had."
