Al Franken still faces Priscilla Lord Faris

Published 8:19 am Wednesday, August 6, 2008

An Aug. 2 Tribune story about election season debates said Debate Minnesota will hold two debates between “incumbent Norm Coleman and DFL challenger Al Franken.” That is a bit premature. Mr. Franken faces a tough primary challenge from Priscilla Lord Faris. The winner of that Sept. 9 DFL primary will face Sen. Coleman. Mr. Franken is no shoe-in.

Editor’s note: Good point, but the story did not say “nominee,” merely “challenger.”
