Ooops!... Just one voter shows up at Al Franken campaign event

Al Franken isn't exactly a hit with Minnesota voters, judging by the turnout at his last campaign event: just one voter showed up. SCTimes:
There’s an old saying in politics that elections are won or lost one vote at a time.

On Friday, DFL-endorsed U.S. Senate candidate Al Franken demonstrated how true that saying can be, when a roundtable on veterans issues at Brigitte’s Cafe his campaign scheduled drew only one participant.

Josh John, a St. Cloud resident who said he served in the Navy from 2000-04, had Franken to himself for an hour as he described difficulties he faced returning from his tour of duty and the help he received from his Veterans Services Office and the St. Cloud VA Medical

Pretty soon, Al Franken can add "failed Senate candidate" to his resume. Right next to "failed talk show host."
