Coleman, Franken, Barkley square off tonight, polls show Franken up


Sen. Norm Coleman, Al Franken and Dean Barkley will debate (and maybe hug?) it out tonight in their fourth and second-to-last meeting before the election.

The debate will air at 7 p.m. on TPT's "Almanac.

The three will also debate live on Minnesota Public Radio Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. from the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul.

The most recent Rasmussen poll in the race released yesterday shows a consistently tight race between Franken and Coleman: Franken 41% Coleman 37% Barkley 17% Undecided 5%

We really hope Coleman uses his underpants joke again. That was a real winner.
