Book on Minnesota Senate Race Promises to be Juicy


Coming to bookstores in October 2010: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Senate: Franken vs. Coleman and the Decline and Fall of Civilized Politics by Wy Spano, a Minnesota political insider who teaches politics at the University of Minnesota in Duluth.
Spano examines the life experiences of the U.S. Senate race between Al Frankin (D) and Norm Coleman (R). He writes about everything from campaign strategies and the recount to money, their thoughts about each other, and the apparent animosity that existed between them.
Says a release from Zenith Press, the book claims to be a “no-holds-barred” read that “offers a smorgasbord of funny things to start readers thinking more about the people behind the campaigns and what it takes to get candidates elected in this country.”
