Sorry, Stuart! Minnesota's current and future Senator Norm Coleman raised $2 million in the first quarter and has $7 million in cash on hand. Al Franken raised $1.9 million in the last quarter of 2007, and hasn't yet released what he raised in Q1. And, he's only got $3.1 million in cash.
In related news, Jesse Ventura is threatening to enter the race, saying:
"You've got Norm Coleman who's a chicken hawk -- he wouldn't serve in Vietnam, he protested against it, now he's rubber stamped George Bush every vote he wanted for the war in Iraq. Then you've got Al Franken a carpet bagger, he hasn't lived in Minnesota for 30 years he doesn't even have a Minnesota driver's license."
And, in yet more related news, if anyone would like to show just how much of a hack Franken is, ask him tough questions about his immigration position (alfranken.com/pages/immigration) and then upload his stuttering response to Youtube. I strongly suspect that he knows little about the issue, since what's at that page is stock DNC boilerplate. I follow the issue closely and can come up with some questions that would throw him for a loop, so if anyone's in the area and is willing to ask him questions, leave a comment.
