It is rare for a state to have both of its U.S. Senators up for election in the same cycle, but Minnesota finds itself in that situation this year after the resignation of Sen. Al Franken with two years remaining on his term.

In one race, Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar stands out as a clear choice over Republican Jim Newberger.

Klobuchar co-authored numerous bills recently signed into law battling opioids.
