Minn. Supreme Court: Franken Won
June 30, 2009 at 2:21 PM (PT)
The MINNESOTA SUPREME COURT has ruled TODAY that former AIR AMERICA RADIO host and comedian AL FRANKEN is the winner of the disputed race for Senate from MINNESOTA by just 225 votes. The court rejected the latest challenge to FRANKEN's election by incumbent and former KSTP-A/ST. PAUL-MINNEAPOLIS host NORM COLEMAN.
While COLEMAN could still have taken his case to federal court in yet another appeal, he declined to do so and conceded the election this afternoon, allowing FRANKEN to proceed to take office.
