Minnesota possibly safe for a few years

"Franken not running for Dayton's Senate seat":

WASHINGTON - After speculation that Al Franken would run for the Senate seat Mark Dayton is leaving open, the comedian says he is not going to be a candidate.

The announcement was made just before 2 p.m. in Washington D.C. during Franken's national radio program Air America.

Franken had said last year that he wanted to run for the Senate seat held by Norm Coleman in 2008. However, after Dayton said he would not seek a second term, he told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that he was considering his candidacy for next year...

I see no upside in this announcement. He probably would have lost, and he probably would have had to give up his show, perhaps making way for Mike Malloy to move into prime time.
