When Al Franken announced his run for the U.S. Senate in 2007, the news was met with skepticism at best, outright ridicule at worst.

More than nine years later, the democratic Senator from Minnesota has not only proven his political chops, but has become a budding progressive icon. Larry Mantle speaks with Senator Franken about his unusual career path, and his views on the Trump White House.

Senator Al Franken will be talking about his new book with comedian Chelsea Handler. The event will be held at Alex Theatre in Glendale tomorrow, July 8, at  8:00pm.
