News Cut live-blogs appeal hearing

Posted at 8:13 AM on June 1, 2009 by Julia Schrenkler

* Starting at 09:00 a.m. CT, the Minnesota Supreme Court holds the hearing into Norm Coleman's appeal of Al Franken's apparent victory in the 2008 U.S. Senate race. MPR airs it live. Listen online.

* Bob Collins live-blogs the hearing and analysis on News Cut. I expect the discussion will be...interesting. Join MPR to share your perspective.

She writes,

"I have had an Al Franken sign in my yard since Feb 2007. It has seen snow, rain, sub-zero lows, sweltering highs, and wind that nearly ripped it in half. Both the blue and the white side are in great condition.

I have seen caucuses, a primary, doorknocks, phonebanks, work site visits, rallies, an election, recount proceedings, and numerous hours watching the proceedings.

My sign & I are ready for Al Franken to be seated, and Minnesota to have full representation in the Senate."

Does the photo make the commentary? Where do you stand on the Coleman-Franken race?
