Al Franken Wins Senate Seat…Again!

Geez, Norm Coleman, it’s nearly July. How much foot-dragging were you planning on doing?

AP reports:

The Minnesota Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered that Democrat Al Franken be certified as the winner of the state’s long-running Senate race.

The high court rejected a legal challenge from Republican Norm Coleman, whose options for regaining the Senate seat are dwindling.

Justices said Franken is entitled to the election certificate he needs to assume office. With Franken and the usual backing of two independents, Democrats will have a big enough majority to overcome Republican filibusters.

Anyway, the important thing about this – besides a comedian being in the senate instead of the other way around, is election oracle, blogger, Nate Silver was also right about this one.
