The Star Tribune has posted

The Star Tribune has posted a longer piece credited to the AP on the possible successor candidates to Senator Wellstone, naming a few folks I had not thought of. The piece is “Democrats to decide who will replace Wellstone on ballot,” Another story in tomorrow morning’s paper is by two of the Strib’s political reporters and quotes all the relevant officeholders on the legal issues involved. Republican secretary of state Mary Kiffmeyer appears to be lost in a cloud of unknowing. The story is “Wellstone off the ballot, DFL will name a replacement,” but in fact the story leaves open the possibility that the senator’s name will remain on the ballot. I stand by my reading of the tea leaves for a variety of reasons, all of them cynical.
