But this decision is not about me. It’s about the people of Minnesota.
Franken did the right thing by his constituency and the thirty-some Democratic senators who called on him to resign left him little choice.

In other poll results, an overwhelming majority of respondents said that they would support relocating Trump to any number of other foreign destinations, including Russia, the Philippines, and “that station where scientists live at the South Pole.”
