There is speculation embattled U.S. Sen. Al Franken will announce his resignation Thursday. Which would mean Gov. Mark Dayton would appoint his successor.
The last time a governor had to fill a vacant Senate seat came in 2002, when Gov. Jesse Ventura appointed Dean Barkley to fill out the term of Democratic Sen. Paul Wellstone when Wellstone was killed in a plane crash.
See his swearing in ceremony from 2002.
