Minnesota Republicans go with McFadden for Senate
ROCHESTER, Minn. -- The Republican U.S. Senate endorsement came down to money vs. party tradition.
Mike McFadden, the moneyed candidate, won.
Candidate Chris Dahlberg had about $40,000 in his campaign bank account and led through the first eight state convention ballots. McFadden, who said he immediately can put $2 million into Republicans' effort to unseat U.S. Sen. Al Franken, came from behind to beat Dahlberg at Saturday's GOP state convention.
