D. who was elected four years after Franken in 2012 "He’s very well-known and respected for the crafts that he’s honed so well the work he’s done as a comedian and satirist but also as a legislator"Presidential parallelsWith his national profile on the rise in recent months Franken’s path to office — which draws distinct parallels to the one of President Trump — is more relevant now than before in contrast to the billionaire real estate mogul and reality TV hostFranken’s opponents in the 2008 campaign were quick to cast him as a careless celebrity who wouldn’t take the job seriously citing early on a satirical article Franken penned for Playboy in 2000 before running for office calling it "demeaning and degrading" to womenMinnesota Republicans and Franken’s opponent Norm Coleman also criticized his focus when he reportedly helped SNL creator Lorne Michaels in sketches that tweaked McCain who was running for president against Obama that year They called it another example that Franken wasn’t suited to hold federal officeSound familiar It should"I knew what I was doing" Franken said of the campaign effort "When I decided to run and was considering it I went all over the state and let DFLers get to know me I think they said ‘OK he’s like a normal guy He’s not a show biz guy He’s a guy with a family’" When the ballots finished in 2008 Franken lost by about 215 votes a margin that fell within the 05 percent automatic recount guidelines DFL Secretary of State Mark Ritchie called one and in January 2009 Franken was declared the winner by 225 votesA challenge

in a decade Minnesota took a celebrity to its highest levels of office In 1998 the state elected former professional wrestler Jesse Ventura as its governor — beating who else but Coleman — from the Independence Party But Ventura’s one and only term was marred by more press about his behavior controversial remarks and personal clashes than his policiesIf the state feared another celebrity mishap it may have been well-placed Franken admits Ventura’s run hurt his campaign "a little bit" tying him to the controversial former governor’s show business star status"I’m not knocking him at all but you couldn’t find two people more different than me and Jesse Ventura" Franken said "People were skeptical of the entertaining business but pro wrestling and political satire are two completely different things"If anything his colleagues say a career in show business and comedy set him up for the political gauntlet where criticisms party-line politics and partisan accusations can run the gamutTake 2010 for an example when a Republican watchdog group claimed to have found more than 2000 potentially illegal ballots from the 2008 election in Hennepin and Ramsey counties After investigations were narrowed down only 71 people were charged including illegally voting felonsIt’s an issue that — after President Trump claimed more than 3 million people voted illegally in the 2016 election costing him the popular vote — resurfaced on occasion as talking points for Franken’s harshest criticsWhen Franken was up for re-election in 2014 a midterm year that was particularly disastrous for Democrats nationally he easily won 54 percent of the vote to ease into his second term riding a high approval rating"He went through a rough and tumble career rising up in comedy You

resilient"Adapting to WashingtonWalking the halls of Congress Franken understood quickly he’d be met with skepticism by colleagues who watched him poke fun at their careers He was never a Congressman a governor or held a seat in the state LegislatureHe was the funnyman who just happened to hold a Harvard degree in government"He showed how he could work hard and not live off his celebrity which he could totally do if he wanted" Klobuchar said of Franken’s freshman year in the Senate "Other senators would come up to him and tell him a joke and he’d laugh — even though some of them were really bad — but he wouldn’t match them He would start to talk about legislation and gain their respect that way"For his first years in office Franken gained a reputation as someone who avoided unnecessary media attention turning down offers to appear on Sunday morning talk shows and other engagements It was part of showing the other members of Congress that he wasn’t out to steal their limelight and damage egosHe describes his initial efforts at letting colleagues to get know him as the "normal guy" with a family He showed up to meetings asked questions and did his homework with very little
