Yes a Potential Michele Bachmann Run for Senate Is Great News tweet

"Senator Klobuchar has been so supportive", Smith says.

Smith said she never anticipated or expected to find herself in the position of USA senator, but promises to be "the best United States senator that I can be so I can really hit the ground running".

"Today was my first official day in Minnesota since getting sworn in", she said.

"Tina Smith will continue the long tradition of great Minnesota senators who have dedicated themselves to opportunity, fairness and improving the lives of working families - and the EMILY's List community is thrilled to endorse her campaign for Senate", Schriock added.

"I do know she intentionally left the swamp when she dropped out of Congress some years ago", the ministry leader tells OneNewsNow, "because it is exactly that: a swamp - not an easy place to be a part of".

"It's great to have good advice, but of course I have to figure out how to do this job in my own way using my own best judgement", she said.


"The fact that it wasn't funded by the federal government is just a travesty", Smith said. "There are so many issues Minnesotans expect us to make headway on, even this month".

Smith is also firmly behind the revival of the Dream Act.

Past year the Trump administration officially announced its plan to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

"It's amusing talking to you newbies, the optimism you still have", Camerota said. "It has strong bipartisan support and we have to get it done because we have people-their lives are literally on hold trying to figure out what they're going to do". "If she ran, I do think there's a possibility - if God is in it - she would come out the victor".

And can we depend on Smith to be an equally passionate champion of the women's and reproductive rights she's been affiliated with in her past?

So far State Senator Karin Housley is the only Republican to announce that she will challenge Smith for the seat. Al Franken's (D-MN) seat.
