Me too.


...and you will get a canned response about why it was "necessary" ... I did. I strongly dislike Coleman, but I hate franken, so I voted for Norm.

Me three. Although I will add that I was one of the over 400,000 Minnesotans who voted for Barkley instead of Coleman. If there are 300 of us out there who voted that way, his margin would have doubled except for that bailout vote. Given the number of people who opposed the bailout I would be surprised if there weren't 10 times that many who did as I did.

My wife considers herself a Dem and will typically vote that way, except this time she said there was no way she could vote for F____. She went to Barkley.
I wasn't pleased with Coleman and filled the circle for Barkley. I really expected to see more votes for him on Weds. Norm could've (should've) pulled this off easily against the wing-nut but couldn't pull through. It is time for new blood in this race.

Volunteers. Nominations. Suggestions.

If Coleman hadn't voted for the bailout I would not have voted Libertarian in that race.

My vote for Coleman was purely a vote to keep Franken out of office... I'm glad... Looks like he needed all that he could get.

Nah. 6 years is a long time in politics. He might get to ride new Republican coat tails by then.


Actually he wasn't even going to run again this time around. He's smart enough to know that with a Senate term under his belt he can make many times more money in the private sector as a lobbyist or a consultant.

But a couple years ago his political elders sat him down and convinced him to go for at least one more term.

I would fully expect this to be his last term, although not for political reasons.

I would also fully expect this to be Pawlenty's last term as well. It's no secret he has higher aspirations. Only question is if he waits for Coleman's seat to vacate or jumps earlier.

Colman will probably respond to your email unlike Amy Klobuchar or Al Franken...

I wouldn't dare to tell anyone how to vote especially when other parties are involved, but Coleman does have an A+ rating from the NRA.

Coleman has responded to EVERY email or letter I have sent him. Usually a canned response, but not always.

Klobuchar has NEVER responded. Even Ellison sends a canned response.

Same experience...except for Ellison. Don't write to him, he's not my rep. Kline is and it's not often I even have issues with him.

Not sure I've gotten anything but a planned response from Coleman though.

I haven't seen an update on this for a while ... the news is saying Franken is ahead and will probably take the seat. I hope this isn't true ... I can just imagine that idiot showing up for all the 'repeal conceal' things at the capital. And as we all know, Franken is a very pushy individual.

Let's hope the ballot count swings the other way.

Ditto.

I keep my promise to him. I told him in an e-mail that I would not vote for him if he supported that pile of crap.

Guess he did not listen to myself and the majority of people he was suppose to be representing.

I don't know what would be worse. MN with Franken and Klobuchar or NY with Schumer and Kennedy.
