U.S. Sen. Al Franken offers advice for college graduates
WILLMAR -- When Sen. Al Franken speaks at college commencements, he urges graduates to hug their parents, "a lot."
Franken stopped in Willmar on Saturday on his way to deliver the commencement address at the University of Minnesota Morris.
"I'm going to start off by congratulating the parents, because the parents get ignored sometimes in these things," he said. "As a parent who's watched two of my children graduate from college, I know it's an enormous day for them, too."
