    The Minneapolis Red StarTribune is a very liberal newspaper here in the Twin Cities. It's obvious they will endorse Al Franken for US Senator again. Today they ran this story about Franken's likely general election opponent.
    -------------
    WASHINGTON – Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Mike McFadden is feverishly seeking support from primary voters in an intense contest to determine who will run against Democratic Sen. Al Franken, but the Sunfish Lake businessman has not voted in a primary election for the past 20 years.

    According to state voter records, McFadden has cast ballots only in general elections — a habit, it turns out, he shares with the majority of Minnesotans.

    Two years ago, only 359,297 Minnesotans cast ballots in the primary election out of 3.05 million registered voters.

    -----------------

    The Minnesota Republican primary election is usually a yawnfest and there is a tradition of the non-winner running in the general election anyways. In short, most years there really is no reason to vote in the GOP primary in Minnesota, but here is the Red StarTribune trying to make this into an issue against the leading GOP contender.

    Want to know how effective an investigative paper the "Red" Star-Tribune is? They lifted this story from a three-day-old article in The Huffington Post!!

    I find that hilarious. Isn't Minneapolis in Minnesota anymore?

    Actually the Huff Post article quotes the Star-Tribune article several times.
