Norm Coleman, the incumbent Republican Senator from Minnesota, hasn't even formally endorsed the presidential campaign of Rudy GIuliani yet.

Andy Barr, Franken's campaign manager, provided this comment to the Huffington Post on how the comedy writer and former Air America radio host reacted to the announcement:
So the Senator who didn't think Halliburton's war profiteering was worth investigating is endorsing the candidate who wanted to put Bernie Kerik in charge of Homeland Security. Makes sense to us!
