Franken Returns to St. Louis Park Junior High
Al Franken delivered a campaign speech at his former school in St. Louis Park. A crowd of about 1,000 gathered to hear the hopeful DFL nominee speak on Saturday.
Comedian Franken said he wants Minnesotans to take his campaign for U.S. Senate seriously. After his initial speech Franken met with 100 reporters in a classroom for a more intimate and informational gathering. In this meeting, Franken laid out his plans for issues such as health care and environment.
Franken announced in February that he was running for U.S. Senate, challenging Republican incumbent Norm Coleman.
Franken recently started making his way across the state. He spoke in front of a crowd of 800 in Duluth in mid-February.
