St. Cloud Times endorses Al for re-election

More good news — The St. Cloud Times Editorial Board endorsed Al for re-election:
In not endorsing Al Franken in 2008, this board cited Independence candidate Dean Barkley as being most in touch with local, middle-class voters. Franken objected immediately and vowed to show it. In six years – and in a highly polarized Capitol – he has, and he deserves re-election.
Again, noting neither he nor Republican challenger Mike McFadden will stray far from their respective party’s line, Franken still stood up for Main Street over Wall Street, for a reasonable farm bill, and for better matching people with employers through education.
