Senate hopeful Franken to campaign at powwow
U.S. Senate candidate Al Franken, a Democrat, will campaign on the Red Lake Nation in northern Minnesota on Friday.

Franken, a well-known comedian, plans to attend the Red Lake Fair and Powwow. He will observe the grand entry and address attendees during the visit.

Franken is facing Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minnesota), who supported the nomination of "Famous" Dave Anderson to run the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Polls show the race to be a tie.
