It's Franzen in four ballots!

Franzen and Ellison at Argyle Sweater Day in Edina in February
Melisa Lopez Franzen's impressive campaign organization was on full display at the SD49 DFL convention today. She won the endorsement for the state senate seat in four ballots, defeating Ann Swenson, a member of the Edina city council, and Cynthia Abrams, a Bloomington resident who is a former member of the school board there and a political activist.

The photo is actually from the gathering in Edina convened by Congressman Ellison after the redistricting maps were released and it was learned that the Fifth District would include the northeast corner of Edina. He spoke at today's convention, too.
