DFL Sen. Al Franken met with Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan today. Franken released this statement about the visit:
"I enjoyed my meeting with Elena Kagan very much. I found her substantive and engaging. I was impressed by her remarkable career and it's clear she would bring some much-needed variety to the court. We had a great, lengthy conversation about many areas of law, the confirmation process, and her views on the role of the Supreme Court."
AP reports that Kagan has already met with a fifth of the Senate.
