Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney announced Wednesday that former Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) will serve as a special adviser on policy to his campaign. Coleman, who lost a drawn-out and contentious 2008 election to Sen. Al Franken (D), is currently chairman of the American Action Network.
In a statement, the former Massachusetts governor said Coleman’s “advice will be critical as I lay out my vision for improving our economy at home and strengthening our partnerships around the world.”
