Though I never anticipated this moment, I am resolved to do everything I can to move Minnesota forward.

Smith, the former Lieutenant Governor, was appointed by Governor Mark Dayton to fill the Senate seat vacated by Al Franken in the face of misconduct allegations. However, when the Governor of Minnesota, Mark Dayton went on to appoint her in December of past year, she made it clear that she plans to run in, and win, the special election.

People packed into Hoops Brewing in Canal Park to hear Smith speak and for a chance to meet and talk to her about what's important to them.

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".

"We need to protect working families and I believe Tina supports that", St. Germaine said.

- 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 think that R.T. Rybak said this about her, she's the velvet hammer", Klobuchar said. "She's hosting the event so just to see two females here representing Minnesota will be great".

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