DFL U.S. Senate candidate Al Franken will be making an appearance at the State Capitol on Wednesday afternoon. The Commission of Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing Minnesotans will hold a rally at noon to urge lawmakers to protect funding for deaf and hard hearing programs. The group will also give Franken an award for "Most Accessible Campaign." The rally is scheduled for noon. I'm told Franken will speak at about 12:20.
