Still Waiting on Minnesota
Posted on Jun 26, 2009
It’s been nearly eight months since Minnesotans went to the polls and they still don’t know who one of their senators is. Norm Coleman trails Al Franken by 312 votes and the case is now in the hands of Minnesota’s Supreme Court, if only it could be bothered to rule.
NPR / Ken Rudin:
Franken, as you all know, leads Coleman, the former incumbent, by 312 votes. A three-judge panel has turned down Coleman’s challenges, and the Republican took his case to the entire state court.
A rumor last week that a decision was imminent got everyone—including most of us at Political Junkie—quite excited. But alas, nothing came of it.
Doesn’t look like it will happen this week either.
