Can Al Franken preserve his legacy? He made his first try Wednesday.
December 21, 2017
As his resignation nears, U.S. Sen. Al Franken on Wednesday embarked on a series of speeches on Capitol Hill that seek at once to embolden fellow Democrats and cast a noble legacy, as opposed to one of humiliation.
Franken delivered a pair of roughly half-hour speeches Wednesday on the floor of the Senate on two issues where he can point to policies and debates in which he was intimately involved: education and the powers of technology.
