The U.S. Senate race in Minnesota was one that no one called a nail biter.
From the beginning of their race, the widely popular Klobuchar, with a sizable campaign cash war chest, maintained a strong lead over her challenger Kurt Bills, a Republican state representative and high school teacher from Rosemount.
The final Star Tribune Minnesota poll showed 66 percent of those surveyed supported Klobuchar. Just 22 percent favored Bills. The newspaper also reported that a final fundraising report showed that Klobuchar had raised $5 million, while Bills had $68,000 in cash on hand.
With a seat regarded as safe, Klobuchar has campaigned for other Democrats.
