Franken & foes in first MN-SEN debate (via @TheUptake)

Minnesota politicsThis morning at 10:30, U.S. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), Republicans Mike McFadden, Jim Abeler and David Carlson, and presumptive Independence Party nominee Kevin Terrell will participate in Election 2014’s first full MN-SEN debate at Farm Fest.

Next week, McFadden, Abeler and Carlson will compete in a Tuesday, Aug. 12, primary election in which the endorsed McFadden is currently favored. Terrell faces a number of relatively unknown candidates in the IP primary. Franken has only token opposition in the DFL primary.
