Franken selects his state director

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Al Franken has selected Alana Petersen to be his state director, according to Minnesota Public Radio.
Petersen has been working for Rep. Jim Oberstar, D-Minn., for the past five years.
“It’s a little difficult because we’re still in a little bit of a legal limbo but we, again, I don’t want to be presumptuous but I feel like it’s irresponsible not to get a jump on this,” Franken told MPR.

    Alana Petersen is a smart, savvy politico. Al made a good move in hiring her.
