Ex-Sen. Sams remembered as bipartisan
ST. PAUL - The tears and hugs were bipartisan.
Dallas Sams would have liked the way his former Minnesota Senate colleagues mourned his death -- in 16 years as senator he worked to be bipartisan. And that is how legislators remembered him.
Sams, 54, died in a Twin Cities' hospital Monday after battling brain cancer more than two years.
Sams wasn't the stereotypical partisan politician.
