DFL comrades: an interview and biographical sketch of Priscilla Lord Faris is here, and I urge you to read it. She's challenging Al Franken to be the DFL (Democrats/Farmer/Labor/Socialist) Party candidate against Norm Coleman. And - as they say in Minnesota - she's sharper than cheddar!
[She says:] "Al Franken cannot win against Norm Coleman and every poll supports that conclusion... I am running because I believe that the Wellstone seat should be occupied by someone who believes that we can do better — end the war, restore our standing in the world, be a more humane country, get our economy going again, provide health care for everyone, and stop corporate greed and partisanship from running the government... I believe that I am the 'Minnesota Solution' to a 'New York City Problem'... Why do we have to have a comedian who lived in New York for 36 years representing us when he’s never been here in the trenches with us working with the DFL? ...He's got millions of dollars, only 17 percent of which is from Minnesota... Is he reflecting what we want our kids to adopt as their values? That's my question..."
She invited the "Problem" to debate her but, of course, he declined.
