CNBC reports (via Minneapolis Star Tribune and Politico) that…

Minnesota Lt. Gov. Tina Smith is the most likely choice to succeed outgoing Sen. Al Franken, the Star Tribune and Politico reported.

They also report…

“Tina has focused on building an economy that works for all Minnesotans — championing issues including rural broadband internet access, expanding access to early learning and supporting statewide job creation,” her bio page reads.
