Minnesota Sen. Al Franken announced his decision to resign 'in the coming weeks' after a tidal wave of his Democratic Senate colleagues called for him step down yesterday. He referenced both President Trump and Roy Moore during his announcement, saying: 'There is some irony that I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party.' What's next: Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton will choose Franken's immediate replacement — rumored to be Lt. Gov. Tina Smith, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. A special election for the remainder of his term will be held in November 2018.
