|Franken's team views the origin of McFadden's hats as a microcosm of his politics.|
In June, Al Franken's campaign went after Mike McFadden for having a batch of his official T-shirts made in Nicaragua. McFadden's camp said it was a one-time thing and pointed out that Mike's shirts are typically made by a Minnesota company.
But Franken's campaign workers are again making McFadden's merch an issue, as today they distributed a release pointing out that hats sold on McFadden's campaign website are apparently made in China.
