Minnesota Senator Al Franken may be leaving Washington, but some of his staff will stay on once Lieutenant Governor Tina Smith replaces him in 2018.
Smith says she's keeping on two key members of Franken's staff: Jeff Lomonaco will stay on as Chief of Staff in Washington and Alana Peterson will continue as Deputy Chief of Staff in Minnesota.
Lomonaco and Peterson are longtime aides to Senator Franken, both working for him since he first took office in 2009.
Tina Smith is working closely with Franken and his staff to ensure a smooth transition.
