    I'm sure they'll find somebody and whoever it is it will screw everything up. That's what the DFL does.

    Fine, have Dayton do it. I'm not looking forward to living in an Iowa/Wisconsin clone if you do. By the way, the RNC today said that they consider Minnesota more like Iowa then Oregon or Washington (real blue states).

    Having already been a senator is completely irrelevant as to whether or not he could be appointed to replace Franken. Politically, it would be unseemly, but there's no legal barrier in that regard. Also, it's not like he was voted out of office, he simply didn't run for office again so he could instead focus on his run to become Gov. Mumbles.

    That is true of most DFL candidates. He would win because of MSP. But again I dont want him to run. (he is my Rep) I say either Walz or Coleman or one of the people who have zero shot at Governor.

    Wait. If you have zero shot at Gov what makes you think you can win a statewide race like Senator?

    I wondered the same thing. Given the makeup of the House and Senate in Minnesota basically and DFLer running statewide needs huge turnout in the cities to win. That appears to be what Handy is banking on. Hillary barely pulled it off but everyone hates her so if you're liked it's supposed to work.

    It certainly used to be that there were resumes for the executive (DA, Lt Gov, business leader, general) and resumes for the legislative (state house member, policy adviser, issue activist), but that has eroded over time. And of course post-Dump there's no longer a thing called "qualified."

    It's a deep primary. I think any of Tim Walz, Chris Coleman, Lori Swanson, or Rebecca Otto(listed is descending confidence) would win the governorship if they won the primary, but the last two are probably long shots to win the primary.

    Resume? No, not after Trump.

    That was weird, though -- a three-way.

    TBH I don't get Minnesota. My impression had been that it was Vermont Only the Girls Are Pretty*, but then a lot of stupid (Coleman) came out of there.

    * I mean, seriously. This is a randomly selected MN HS soccer team:



    There are more pretty girls in that picture than in my entire HS. My HS had 1500 students.

    That's a pretty average high school team around here.
