Senator And Former SNL Writer Al Franken To Campaign Penn State Friday

United States Senator and former Saturday Night Live writer Al Franken will be in State College on Friday, October 28 for a phone banking event where he will talk to local voters and answer questions.

Franken, a member of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, will be speaking to State College residents between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. on behalf of the Clinton campaign. The event will take place at the PA Democratic Coordinated Campaign Office at 112 W Foster Ave, Suite two.

Franken traded a successful career in the entertainment industry for political activism, which culminated in his election to the Senate representing Minnesota in 2008 and his re-election in 2014. He has served on the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, the Committee on Indian Affairs, and the Committee on the Judiciary.

The Clinton press release reads:

“Join other supporters in State College for a phonebank with Senator Al Franken! We’re less than two weeks to Election Day, and know that talking directly to other voters is the most effective way to encourage students to vote. Come here from Senator Franken and help make Hillary the first woman president!”
