Minnesota Senate Race

In Minnesota, a first-term Republican is facing an uphill battle in his bid for re-election to the U.S. Senate. Polls show Senator Rod Grams running behind his wealthy Democratic challenger, department store heir Mark Dayton. Grams' seat is considered one of the most vulnerable in a Senate where Republicans currently hold only a slim majority. NPR's David Welna reports from Saint Paul.
