FILE - In this June 30, 2009 file photo, Democrat Al Franken smiles as he meets the media at his house in Minneapolis, after the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled in his favor in the Senate race against Republican Norm Coleman. Republicans figured he would be an easy target the second time around. But Franken has transformed his race into one that many national Republicans are writing off, choosing to focus their money instead on more vulnerable Democrats. He's done it in part by transforming his image from the wisecracking former Saturday Night Live star into quiet policy work. (AP Photo/Andy King,File)
