DFL Convention: McCollum hears boos

Some delegates register their disapproval of Al Franken antagonist and DFL congresswoman Betty McCollum.

There were more than a few boos when DFL Congresswoman Betty McCollum was introduced to the crowd. McCollum has pummeled U.S. Senate hopeful Al Franken the hardest for his ribald writings.

Fellow DFL Congressman Keith Ellison, who followed McCollum, valiantly asked the crowd to support McCollum. After initial cheers, more boos rang out.
