Author and Air America celebrity, Al Franken, endorsed Instant Runoff Voting at a Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Senate District 60 fundraiser on July 11th. Al Franken was guest speaker at the event, held on behalf of Senator Scott Dibble and Representatives Frank Hornstein and Margaret Anderson Kelliher, all of whom support Instant Runoff Voting.

The event featured an Instant Runoff Voting dessert demonstration election, where guests sampled a variety of desserts and elected a majority winner using Instant Runoff Voting. On the ballot were lemon raspberry bars, pumpkin bars, brownies and seven layer bars. The brownies won a plurality of first choice votes and a majority of votes on the third round.
