Minnesota Candidates

In Minnesota, the race for Senate is split right down the middle. On the Republican side is Norm Coleman, former mayor of St. Paul. On the other, is incumbent Democrat Paul Wellstone. Both men say they will bring a unique perspective to the U.S. Senate, offering different paths of leadership. The race may last into the wee hours on election night, and may very well decide the majority of the Senate. Robert Siegel traveled to Minnesota; he has a report on one of the closest races in America.
