After nearly eight months, Al Franken has won the election to the United States Senate.
There are indications that Pawlenty will sign the election certificate.
I’ll update shortly as soon as I have more information.
UPDATE UPDATE: COLEMAN CONCEDES
I read the decision. It didn’t direct the governor to certify Franken, it just said Franken had won.
Norm can now take a long hike down the old Appalachian Trail. Bonus points for Normy if he gets Michelle “Bat-Shit Crazy” Bachman to join him.
The Reuters account said Coleman was unlikely to move to a federal appeal. Finally, you’ve got (almost) full representation!
Coleman just had a press conference, and stated he wouldn’t take his fight any further.
A commenter (not a commentator) on our local (Michigan) news just stated that “during this whole mess, Coleman has carried himself as a man of honesty and integrity.”
I’m very glad my son knows how to perform the Heimlich maneuver.
