I wonder what Al Franken’s internal polling is telling him.

Presumably not good things.

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) says he would be open to a brief delay in the individual mandate if the problems with HealthCare.gov aren’t fixed by the end of the month, according to Minnesota Public Radio.

“I think then we have to consider extending the deadline for the mandate, but let’s hope that doesn’t happen,” Franken told MPR.

Franken has so far been relatively quiet about potential changes to the health-care law, but he now joins a growing group of Senate Democrats in seats that could be targeted by the GOP in 2014 who are speaking up on the issue.

…And as you can see, the Washington Post kind of agrees with me there.  Franken has always been, in my opinion, more brittle than he looks; and while you are certainly welcome to discount my opinion (I am not always right) Franken is certainly showing the signs of somebody who is at least worried. Guess we’ll see.

    As a Minnesotan, I would be very happy to see the political demise of Acting Senator Al Fraudken. Not really seeing an opponent yet, but it’s early.

      Mike McFadden. He’s a businessman, he’s been running for a while. Already got endorsements from previous GOP Senators.

    • midwestconservative says:

      There is also State Rep. Jim Abeler and State Senator Julia Ortmann.

    Franken got in by a gnat’s whisker last time – he knows that there won’t be a margin for fraud this time…

    Not familiar with current Minnesota politics, other than knowing that they have a Democrat-Farm-Labor party that is a bit closer to Trotsky instead of the regular Democrats who are trying to catch up with them. And that Franken got in by forging ballots over a long period of time after the election; that somehow were outside the legal chain of custody for ballots, and were counted despite that.

    So what has changed that will prevent fraud from happening again?

    Especially since that seems to be the way that the entire Democrat party is going nationwide [Here in Colorado, with Democrats controlling the governorship and both houses of the legislature, suddenly we have more registered voters in 19 of our 64 counties, than people of voting age. The honesty of any statewide elections, or in those counties, is now highly doubtful.]
