Franken rallies for American Indian vote
CASS LAKE - American Indians face unique challenges that need representation in Congress, says Al Franken, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, who Sunday visited three reservations.
"There are unbelievable challenges facing these folks and it's very daunting," Franken said Sunday afternoon in an interview after meeting with about 20 Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe members at the Dik-in-aa-gan Child Care Center in Cass Lake. "The spirit and resilience of these folks is very inspiring."
