Franken vs. McFadden in Senate race


Incumbent Democratic Senator Al Franken and Republican candidate Mike McFadden have different strategies to boost the economy: McFadden emphasizes cutting red tape to speed copper-nickel mining and oil pipeline projects; Franken wants to help refinance student debt and improve job skills training.

The candidates disagree on the Affordable Care Act: McFadden has said he would repeal it and replace it with a “patient-centered, market-based” program controlled by the states; Franken defends it, saying the law cut the state’s uninsured rate nearly in half.
