U.S. Rep. John Kline said Friday that he will not challenge U.S. Sen. Al Franken next year. Instead, the Republican said he will seek re-election to the 2nd District.

Franken, a first-term Democrat, has raised $2 million for his 2014 re-election bid. Republican opposition has not surfaced for Franken.

Kline has represented the district, which includes Red Wing, since 2003.
