BREAKING: Look Who Is Replacing Al Franken!
Democratic Representative Al Franken will reportedly resign on Thursday and sources are confirming Lt. Governor of Minnesota Tina Smith will be his replacement.
The Hill reported: Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is likely to tap Lt. Gov. Tina Smith to replace Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) should the senator resign in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations, The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Thursday.
The newspaper cited a "high-ranking Democratic source." The governor's office did not respond to a request for comment.
Franken is scheduled to make an announcement Thursday after more than 30 Democratic senators, including Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), called for his resignation.
Minnesota Public Radio reported that Franken will announce his resignation, though the senator's office pushed back and said a final decision had not been made.
