This makes her the ultimate favorite to win the seat, even if the Republicans have intentions to take the seat for them by putting forward a strong contender.

Democrat Senator Al Franken has officially submitted his resignation after being pressured late a year ago to step down in the face of sexual misconduct allegations, the media reported.

Governor Mark Dayton has also shared plenty of advice, Smith says.

Duluth Mayor Emily Larson hosted the meet-and-greet Friday, two days after Smith, a former lieutenant governor, was sworn in to fill the Senate seat vacated when Sen. "I know that she will be a superb senator, representing the best interests of our state and our citizens". Smith said. "One of the biggest economic challenges Minnesota families face is that they can't afford good healthcare".

If God is involved, Michele Bachmann could be elected USA senator from Minnesota - so says the head of a Messianic Jewish ministry based in that state.

For Smith's part, she responded to news of her senate invitation by stating, "I accept this appointment, and it will be my great honor to serve Minnesota as United States senator. I will be a fierce advocate in the United States Senate for economic opportunity and fairness for all Minnesotans".
