  •  MN has often had a split delegation (4+ / 0-)

    Minnesota has traditionally had a split delegation, having both a Democrat and a Republican senator (at least for most of my life). But a big reason Coleman is in the Senate is because Paul Wellstone was killed eleven days before the election in 2002. Polls showed Wellstone ahead at the time. The GOP media machine turned his memorial into faux outrage and poor Walter Mondale tried to fill the breech, but it wasn't enough with the wall-to-wall screeching about the bad Democrats (Franken has a chapter dedicated to this in his Lying Liars book).
