Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton (D) is likely to tap Lt. Gov. Tina Smith (D) to replace Sen. Al Franken (D), who resigned on Thursday, according to a report in The Minneapolis Star Tribune.

The newspaper cited a “high-ranking Democratic source.” The governor’s office did not respond to a request for comment.

Franken announced his resignation just before noon in a speech on the Senate floor.
