Former Minnesota Senator Al Franken says he regrets resigning from the Senate. Franken made the comments in a New Yorker article that details his stepping down in 2017 amid allegations of sexual harassment. The story is leading some to speculate whether Franken might consider a future run for office. Carleton College Political Science Professor Steven Schier says that could be an uphill battle…

“I think Al Franken’s main problem will be with the activists in his own party who will, I think, hold the allegations against him as much more serious than a lot of voters do.”

The New Yorker article calls into question several of the allegations made against Franken by one of his main accusers, Leeann Tweeden.
