… regarding the Franken-Coleman Recount.
Remember Norm Coleman declaring victory over and over again when he was a couple of hundred votes ahead, prior to the recount? Remember Norm Coleman declaring that the only right thing to do was for Franken to simply withdraw from the race?
The RNC has issued this statement:
WASHINGTON, Dec. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Robert M. “Mike” Duncan announced the following statement tonight.
“Al Franken’s declarations of victory are as inaccurate as they are premature. This recount has taken some time and we won’t know a winner for weeks to come. And, when a winner finally does emerge, we are confident it will be Norm Coleman.
“During this process, Minnesotans have shown a great amount of patience and respect; Al Franken and Washington Democrats should follow their lead and do the same.”
Franken’s campaign has not declared victory. They simply said that it looks like they might win, but they still want the rest of the votes (not a cherry picked subset of the votes) counted.
This statement will pretty much be ignored, but I thought you might enjoy it.
