  • Tina Smith To Replace Disgraced Sen. Al Franken

Democrat Senator Al Franken has officially submitted his resignation after being pressured late past year to step down in the face of sexual misconduct allegations, the media reported. Though I never anticipated this moment, I am resolved to do everything I can to move Minnesota forward.

According to a post from the office of Governor Dayton, the governor credits Smith with some impressive social and economic efforts on behalf of the state's citizens-including "expanding paid parental leave, cracking down on wage theft, combatting the opioid crisis, growing Minnesota's clean energy economy, improving access to high-speed Internet, enrolling tens of thousands of children in high-quality, early-learning programs, and increasing access to jobs and economic opportunity for all Minnesotans".

Senator smith addressed issues she wants to focus on while in Washington, from paid parental leave to maintaining roads.

"Senator Klobuchar has been so supportive", Smith says. Smith is to sworn in for her position in the Senate, on 3rd January, after Franken officially leaves his seat. "I couldn't be happier or more proud of our state that we get the wonderful representation from Tina".

Friday night Senator Tina Smith made her first big public appearance, meeting Northlanders in Duluth. "I believe there's a real opportunity to make headway here".

"I think that she probably should take interest in rural and urban areas of the cities", UMD professor political science Cindy Rugeley "Pay attention to greater Minnesota as well as the twin cities and more urban areas". She also worked as a vice president of external affairs for Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.

"I do know she intentionally left the swamp when she dropped out of Congress some years ago", the ministry leader tells OneNewsNow, "because it is exactly that: a swamp - not an easy place to be a part of". "Tina Smith is very different".

"Some of the basic things you have to do, like figuring out where I'm going to live when I'm in Washington, D.C., and learning about the Senate and how the Senate works", she said.

Here's to hoping 2018 is crammed with all kinds of work on women's behalf that can fill Smith with pride.
