In a midday ruling, the Minnesota Supreme Court rejected Former Senator Norm Coleman’s appeal to overturn the decision by the three judge Election Contest trial court that Al Franken won the the 2008 Senate Election in Minnesota.
Coleman, in a humble concession speech, (which The UpTake was not allowed to record) said the process has gone far enough. This video is Senator-Elect Al Franken’s response, from his home in Minneapolis, MN.
While Senator-Elect Franken will be the 60th Democrat in the US Senate, he says it’s more important that he will be the “2nd Senator from Minnesota”. He is expected to be sworn in next week.
