She also said she is grateful for the help and advice from her predecessor and current federal delegation members like Sen.

During her speech Saturday night Smith brought up the long history of her senate seat, praising senators like Paul Wellstone, Huber Humphrey and Walter Mondale.

"I do know she intentionally left the swamp when she dropped out of Congress some years ago", the ministry leader tells OneNewsNow, "because it is exactly that: a swamp - not an easy place to be a part of".

"I think that R.T. Rybak said this about her, she's the velvet hammer", Klobuchar said.

"This week in Washington was just surreal", Smith says. "She's worked on everything from broadband to making sure that we have a strong economy in our state".

"Al Franken is an outspoken partisan who really endeared himself to his own party's base, but had limited relations with members of the opposition party", Schier said.

"It hasn't been beaten out of you yet by Capitol Hill". "If she ran, I do think there's a possibility - if God is in it - she would come out the victor".

Now she wants to serve as the Junior Senator for her state, as the special elections in November 2018 provide her a chance to win the rights to serve the Senate in Franken's final two years of terms.
