Al Franken pays tribute to Robert Byrd

First-term Senator Al Franken says despite Senator Byrd’s senior status on the hill, he was always very kind to Franken. Franken praised him for showing up whenever Democrats needed his vote - even in the deep snows of this past winter when health care votes were cast.

The junior Senator from Minnesota said he'd have to serve until he was 118 years old to serve as long in the Senate as long as Robert Byrd.
