I have just seen notice that Democrat Al Franken's election to the U.S. Senate has been affirmed by the Minnesota Supreme Court. Norm Coleman, the incumbent Republican, has been fighting the result of the polls in November ever since then. But today he conceded the election. And the proper certification will be issued by the certification board or whatever it is today. Word is that he will not be able to take his seat till next week because of the July 4 break. It's about frigging time! Only eight months later the used up Republicans are admitting they lost another seat.
An this is an important one. It's going to give Obama a solid 60 votes when the two independents who vote with the Democrats are added.
