A small plane crashed today in Eveleth, Minnesota. Sources are saying it is the plane that Sen. Paul Wellstone (D-Minn) uses, but no one can confirm that he was on the plane. No major newsites have a link yet.
*update* ABC news is reporting that Sen. Wellstone is dead, as is everyone who was on the plane. This is awful news, regardless of how you feel about the Senator's politicics. My thoughts go out to the families of the victims.
*another update* His wife and daughter were on the plane, also. How very sad.
