Late last week, Franson took to Facebook to complain about a "horrible picture" the DFL used in a new ad paid for by the House DFL caucus (visible above). Wrote one Franson supporter: "They made you fat that is so freaking wrong."
Rep. Franson, R-Alexandria, is understandably upset, but at least she has a sense of humor about the whole thing:
No public polling has been conducted pertaining to the House District 8B race, so Rep. Franson's reelection prospects are unclear. But in August, campaign finance documents showed Cunniff outraising Franson, and that same month, the cash-strapped MNGOP took the unusual step of spending $3,000 to conduct internal (and unreleased) polling in Franson's district.
Will Rep. Franson be around to entertain us for two more years? As is the case with Michele Bachmann, either way that question is answered tomorrow, we'll have mixed emotions.
