St. Paul, Minn. (AP) Comedian Al Franken has won the democratic primary for U.S. Senate in Minnesota, setting up a showdown with Republican Senator Norm Coleman.

The author and former radio show host and “Saturday Night Live” cast member has grabbed the nomination in a seven-way primary.

Coleman also easily defeated his primary opponent on the republican side, an expatriate living in Italy.

Six other states and the District of Columbia also held primary elections Tuesday.
