(Newser) – Political junkies can play out the Minnesota Senate race in an online game called "Seat the Senator," the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Set up by the National Wildlife Federation, the game challenges players to guess who will be sworn in as Minnesota’s senator and when—up until Dec. 31, 2015. The winner will get a Congressional Directory autographed by Al Franken or Norm Coleman—whichever one wins.
