DES MOINES, Iowa — Democrat Michael Franken, a retired naval admiral from Sioux City, announced his candidacy for U.S. Senate Thursday.
In a statement on Twitter, Franken wrote: "An important part of leadership is doing what’s right. In 2002, I cast the sole ‘no’ vote during deliberations on the invasion of Iraq."
Franken also ran in 2020 and was the runner-up to Theresa Greenfield in the Democratic primary against Republican Sen. Joni Ernst.
