Senator Tina Smith talks about work ahead

UNITED STATES- JANUARY 03 Sen. Doug Jones D-Ala. is administered an oath by Vice President Mike Pence during a swearing-in ceremony in the Capitol's Old Senate Chamber after the actual event on the senate floor

She also said she is grateful for the help and advice from her predecessor and current federal delegation members like Sen. Taking over for the embattled Al Franken (D-MN) faced with allegations of sexual harassment, Smith's swearing in starts a new chapter for the state. However, when the Governor of Minnesota, Mark Dayton went on to appoint her in December of previous year, she made it clear that she plans to run in, and win, the special election.

"The visits that I'm doing today and tomorrow are really focused on economic development and creating opportunity for Minnesotans", said Smith.

Mark Dayton appointed Smith to fill former Sen. "I couldn't be happier or more proud of our state that we get the wonderful representation from Tina".

"Senator Klobuchar has been so supportive", Smith says.

Apple (AAPL) Given a $175.00 Price Target at Nomura
On Tuesday, August 15 KONDO CHRIS sold $1.01 million worth of Apple Inc. 15,641 shares were sold by Riccio Daniel J . Finally, Principal Financial Group Inc. grew its position in shares of Apple by 25.3% in the second quarter.

In addition to her tenure as Planned Parenthood's vice president for public affairs, Smith's resume lists numerous other examples of quality job prep. "I will be a fierce advocate in the United States Senate for economic opportunity and fairness for all Minnesotans". "It was everything from getting my senate ID card to moving into my apartment, to meeting Senator Franken's staff". "Al Franken's staff in the Senate, which is very important because they are staff that is respected on both sides of the aisle, and it will allow me to then be able to really go to work right off the bat", Smith said.

As the Dayton's decision to support Smith didn't come as a surprise, the decision to allow her another run in 2018 caught some of the on-lookers off-guard. With a GOP majority across Washington she says she realizes it will be hard to accomplish certain things.

"I think that she probably should take interest in rural and urban areas of the cities", UMD professor political science Cindy Rugeley "Pay attention to greater Minnesota as well as the twin cities and more urban areas".

Saturday, Smith will also be making a number of appearances in the area, including on the Iron Range.
