DFL Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar are applauding the release of two Americans who were jailed in Iran on espionage charges.
One of the men, 29-year-old Shane Bauer, was born and raised in Minnesota. Franken said he hopes to meet Bauer soon.
“I’m very relieved that it looks like it’s over and I won’t completely breathe freely until they’re back with their families,” Franken said Wednesday morning.
