Update on 2008 Minnesota Senate Race

Yesterday, Minnesota Republican Governor Tim Pawlenty announced his frustration with the still ongoing recount of the 2008 Senate race between Norm Coleman and Al Franken. Coleman, the incumbent Republican, is behind Franken by approximately 200 votes, and is currently in a legal dispute over some of the rejected and allowed ballots. The seat is still open, and Pawlenty is unable to do anything, including seat a temporary Senator while the race is decided. Pawlenty has stated that he will continue to follow Minnesota law and not seat anyone until the races is decided. The race is officially the longest ever to continue past the autumn vote. RMC will keep you updated on the race and any changes.
