Republican Sen. Norm Coleman says he won't support an immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. Democrats have been trying to pressure Coleman this week as the Senate debates various amendments about the Iraq war.
The Mason-Dixon Research poll says Sen. Norm Coleman presently enjoys more than a 20-percent spread between him and either Al Franken or Mike Ciresi. But his approval rating has slipped below 50 percent.
DFLers Mike Ciresi and Al Franken are working behind the scenes to win the support of party activists who will likely vote to endorse a candidate for Senate at next year's DFL state convention.
While Democratic candidate Al Franken turned
to fellow entertainers to raise money for his Senate campaign, Sen.
Norm Coleman got help from fellow Republicans, receiving donations
from more than a dozen leadership political action committees run
by GOP senators.
