A decision Paul Wellstone made 10 years ago may have cost him his life, but it was typical for the U.S. senator.
While running for his third U.S. Senate term representing Minnesota, Wellstone opted against appearing with former Vice President Walter Mondale and U.S. senators Edward Kennedy and Tom Daschle in the Twin Cities to instead attend the funeral of a friend on the Iron Range.
October 25 is the 10th anniversary of the plane crash that took the lives of U.S. Senator Paul Wellstone, his wife Sheila Wellstone, their daughter Marcia Wellstone Markuson and Wellstone campaign staffers Tom Lapic, Mary McEvoy and Will McLaughlin. This fall, three remembrance events are planned to honor their lives and remember their legacy.
