Minnesota's Newest Senator Tina Smith Makes First Stop in Duluth

Alisyn Camerota and Sen. Tina Smith's

"Today was my first official day in Minnesota since getting sworn in", she said. Al Franken resigned over allegations from several women of sexual misconduct.

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

Smith is the former lieutenant governor that was appointed to former Sen. "I know that she will be a superb senator, representing the best interests of our state and our citizens". "Tina Smith is a person of the highest integrity and ability", he said in that same post. In addition to national issues like funding the government, addressing immigration, funding a health care program for children, and more, Smith says she's listening to constituents before she lays out her Minnesota-specific priorities.

- Senator Tina Smith, Minnesota's newest U.S. Senator, was back in Minnesota for the first time since being sworn in to the Senate on January 3. "I will be a fierce advocate in the United States Senate for economic opportunity and fairness for all Minnesotans". With the help of Franken's staff, that's exactly what she plans on doing.

"One of the first decisions I made was to keep much of Senator Franken's staff in the Senate, which is very important".

Less than a week after becoming a member of the Senate, Smith has started meeting people across the state to learn about what they think she needs to be working on.

Smith says she's being realistic about what she can accomplish here on Capitol Hill.

And the next thing she plans on focusing on when she heads back to Washington next week?

"I will continue to work very hard on rural broadband".

"It's great to have good advice, but of course I have to figure out how to do this job in my own way using my own best judgement", she said.

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