Veteran NBC political commetator Chuck Todd recently revealed a secret about how Senate Democrats view Al Franken:
I have had multiple very high level Democrats on the Hill sit there with their fingers crossed. They are scared of Franken winning. More importantly they fear that if Franken wins then every liberal Hollywood type is going to say 'hey I can run for office too...'
It's my understanding that the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee has reduced its spending on Franken's challenge. I wonder if this is why?
