Happy to send Al to North Dakota

Ed Schultz made the news, “Dems ask Schultz to run for open seat” (Forum, Jan. 7). North Dakota House Minority leader Merle Boucher,

D-Rolette, “encouraged Ed to consider it.”

Schultz stated he lives in Detroit Lakes, Minn., and didn’t believe he would qualify because of residency issues. Boucher said about Schultz, “I think he’s very much a North Dakotan.”

Gosh, I didn’t know it was so easy. I wish Boucher had asked last year – a lot of “Minnesotans” would have been very happy to let North Dakota have Al Franken.
