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.”
Vice President Joe Biden waits to conduct a mock swearing-in ceremony with Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, in the Capitol's Old Senate Chamber, December 2, 2014. Schatz was sworn in to serve the remainder of his term since he was appointed to the seat after Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, passed away.
